Shell Eco-marathon Americas 2010

For all the fuss in this country about green why is it that I just hear about this event this weekend?
Shell Eco-marathon Americas 2010 that will take place March 26-28, 2010 in Houston, Texas.
The Shell Eco-marathon challenges high school and college student teams from around the world to design, build and test energy efficient vehicles. With annual events in the Americas, Europe and Asia, the winner is the team that goes the furthest distance using the least amount of energy. This event also affords an outstanding engagement opportunity for current and future leaders who are passionate about finding sustainable solutions to the world’s energy challenge.

And why are there only seven teams from the USA competing?

Please if you live in Houston attend the race...For details
