In order to cast a light on a global issue like climate change, the team behind the new film Racing Extinction turned a standard Tesla Model S into a “mobile projection vehicle.” See what mods they made, and follow along at www.facebook.com/racingextinction

Story
Tagline
Never underestimate a vegan hippie chick with a race car. I like wind, solar, scuba diving and going 200 mph. Discovery's #1 eco athlete. My Tesla runs on sunshine.
Introduction
Leilani Münter is a race car driver and environmental activist who was named the #1 Eco Athlete in the World by Discovery's Planet Green. She is a recipient of ELLE Magazine's 2012 Genius Award. Leilani holds a bachelors degree in Biology specializing in Ecology, Behavior and Evolution from the University of California San Diego. Since 2007, Leilani has adopted an acre of rainforest for every race she runs and is a long time vegetarian and eco activist. She is politically active in the legislative fight for the environment, speaking on Capitol Hill to Congress on behalf of clean energy legislation.

Leilani races in the ARCA Series, a development league of NASCAR. She is the fourth woman in history to race in the Indy Pro Series, the development league of IndyCar. She set the record for the highest finish for a female driver in the history of the Texas Motor Speedway when she finished fourth in 2006. Her racing accomplishments have landed her on the pages of USA Today, Italian Vogue, Esquire, ESPN and Sports Illustrated named her one of the top ten female race car drivers in the world.

With family ties in the music community – her brother-in-law is Grateful Dead guitarist and singer Bob Weir - Leilani's motto is "Never underestimate a vegan hippie chick with a race car." She documents her efforts to go green on The Huffington Post and her site CarbonFreeGirl.com. Leilani is left handed. She is small, but tough.
