EcoModder Green Grand Prix drivers, please get in contact with me by pm here on EcoModder. I suspect we have drivers who haven't spoken up on this thread.

We need to do some planning.

I just got an email from GGP organizer Bob Gillespie. He'd like to have more EcoModder drivers in this year's event. So would I!

If you're considering going this year, please contact me and the Green Grand Prix. See the first post in this thread for their web link.

I'm told that Mike Loveland retired his prizewinning Civic VX. Won't be joining us this year, sorry to say. ☹️

We have a team of five! This is excellent.
Would love to have more, if you're willing and able. Contact me by pm or here, if you're interested.
(Did I miss someone who is planning on driving?)

Current EcoModder GGP team:
- brucepick, driving Insight hybrid, 3 cyl, modified
- Gasoline Fumes, driving '91 Civic DX, in Exhibition Class
- rustygirl, driving Gen 2 Prius, presumably stock
- svt98t, driving '97 Ford Crown Victoria HPP. Modded??
- UltArc, driving Mustang V6, modded

We have a chance at winning more awards by entering in a broader variety of classes. We have an excellent variety here - so far none of our cars are in the same competition class as any other of our cars.

I know we say this every year, but it still would be nice to have something to coordinate Team Ecomodder. Could we score some free swag from the Admin? Maybe some bumper/window stickers or shirts?

I still have about 40 or Ecomodder business cards i made that I try to get rid of during the event.

UltArc: I remember you said you had a bunch of old motorola phones i think that can be used as walkietalkies?

Do our hybrid team members know how to force charge before competing? Starting with a full battery is good! Obviously done before resetting the MPG display.
Insight - 3500 RPM in neutral (EPS light might come on, ignore it)
Prius - Full brake and full throttle in drive (Release throttle first!)
