Alternative fuel-powered vehicles will race from New York to Paris

Alternative fuel and hybrid-powered automobiles will compete in an “around-the-world race” next February--the centennial of the Greatest Auto Race--to prove the viability of new automotive technologies. The "Great Race World 35,000 km, New York to Paris 2008" offers a $1 million Innovation Prize to the Innovation Technology division winner. A $500,000 prize will go to the winner of the Classic division, which includes cars from 1969 or earlier. The race will start in New York and is expected to finish in Paris 80 days later.
