You are here: TRANSLOGIC 130: Green Grand Prix, Alfred State Insight
The 2013 Toyota Green Grand Prix features all kinds of eco-friendly vehicles in a two-stage fuel-efficiency competition. Stage 1 takes place at Watkins Glen International race track and stage 2 takes to the streets in a road rally format. We speak with the director of the Green Grand Prix, Bob Gillespie, and then take a ride in a heavily modified 2003 Honda Insight entered by Alfred State College.

Excellent! This race is a great outlet to demonstrate that fuel efficient cars are the future. The race embraces future technology, and educates the public as to it.
Kudos to Bob Gillespie, and the rest of the Green Grand Prix crew.

Maybe there would be more active participants if we found out about this event before it took place rather than reading about it afterwards.

Nice, but:
On AOL, so you get a Chevy Truck ad, the anti-gas saving guzzeler.

Cruise control on my Prius 2012 deals great with hills, up or down, even on a pretty stiff downgrade, will not increase more than 2 mph!!

Having got 65 MPG once, I was awed. My "normal" driving would never provide that... Excel where I put all gas relating information for the last ten years shows me at 45 MPG overall for 2013. Right now the data screen says 49 MPG, because I did not hit the expressway over the week end..

I said it before, pay the guy more money so that he gets a shave..
