Impressive news from the new Prototype CNG category late yesterday afternoon: team Microjoule-La Joliverie pulled off a 2,521km/litre equivalent first attempt (imagine driving from Rotterdam to Palermo on one litre). New category, new benchmark.
The first UrbanConcept challenge started this morning. First on track was Louis Delage School from France with their gasoline car, pulling off 476km/litre equivalent to lead their category and set a new track record. French Team Iut Gmp Valenciennes have set a track record of 1,323km/l in the Prototype diesel category.
DTU Roadrunners soon rode triumphantly to the top of the UrbanConcept ethanol category with 557km/l equivalent. After fire damaged their car two days ago, and with 200 hours of combined teamwork under their belts, the result was just 42km/l short of their 2014 winning best.
In Prototype gasoline, team TED from France swept into the lead, above Remmi-Team, with 2,308km/l.
