Yep, I know... Sorry guys...

Sean's FEH run was 74.4
Wayne G Insight run was 1.1 L/100km or something between 205-225 MPG.

The camp grounds ( kinda ) we are at are pretty full and there was only enough time to do 20 people.

Well, now that Wayne is the captain of the world, I guess he decides who he wants to be part of it.

So what kinds of speeds are they driving or how long does it take to complete the 16 mile course?

You likely would have been able to jog alongside and carry on a conversation, walking for extended periods during the glides up to stops

Sounds like it was probably lots of fun. Nothing like deserted country roads and a warm day for eye popping numbers.

But I have to say the event title is a little overblown!

Oh, I don't know. I can see the attraction of exploring the technical fuel economy limits of a car... even if an average person could travel faster, comfortably, on a bicycle.
