Planned for the 4th of July weekend, the Escape from Berkeley race is taking contestants that have non-petroleum-based fuel vehicles to race from Berkeley, California to Las Vegas.
Part of the rules include:
*Not using a petroleum source
*10kwh stored on board is allowed (about one gallon of typical liquid fuels) to get you going
Fuel conversion is pretty left to you scavenging for ways to create an alternative source of fuel like biomass gasifiers, on-board sugar stills, solar, steam, fast starch anaerobic digesters, penumatic, creek side hydro, Tesla free energy vortexes, cold fusion, humans…
Extra points will be awarded for wit and style.
