...No, the Solar Freedom is about fun, not competition.  Some other Tellurian concepts, though, are good for track days...

The Tavari would make an excellent spec racer.  No downforce to speak of, but the weight of the batteries keeps it glued down.

What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Daytona hasn't killed me yet - though she has tried a few times - she is making me stronger. Photo credit: National Speed Sport News.

It's On: Solar Prepares for Battle vs Koch Bros. Let the Sunlight Revolution begin!
It’s hard to tell facts from lies after reviewing the hatchet job on solar energy by the Koch brothers’ front group, The Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA).

Climate Change Denying Scientist Accepted $1.2 Million from Fossil Fuel Industry http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/22/us/ties-to-corporate-cash-for-climate-change-researcher-Wei-Hock-Soon.html
Newly released documents show the extent of the links between corporate interests and the published work of Wei-Hock Soon, a Smithsonian-affiliated scientist who has tried to debunk the consensus about global warming.

After my carbon monoxide poisoning at Daytona last week, it seems appropriate to share this --> the #RacingExtinction team says GO ELECTRIC!

This conversation made me :) Friend: Are you sore? Me: Yes, a bit. Friend: Yeah, I'm sore from moving boxes, can't imagine a 190mph collision.

Never underestimate a vegan hippie chick with a race car.
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.
