In 2008, Louis Palmer became the first person ever to drive a solar powered car around the world. This project was known as the Solartaxi. It took him 534 days to complete his circumnavigation and spread his powerful message: renewable energies are reliable, affordable and ecological!

In June 2010 he intends to take things even further. This time he doesn’t want to do it alone. Louis Palmer is challenging the world to a race -via the The Zero Emission Race. This race is planned to be a thrilling global event that will harness public interest and generate new ways of thinking about mobility, cars and energies.

Competitors from all four corners of the globe are invited to drive their own zero emission race cars.Each competitor’s lean, mean, green machine will be designed to run strictly on ‘alternative’ energy such as solar, wind, wave or geothermal.

The aim is to make zero emission energy solutions accessible to a worldwide audience by creating a highly entertaining global media event.

When the chequered flag will finally come down, the ultimate winner will be Planet Earth.
