Sure, but it also doubles or even quadruples their allowed fuel use over those 200miles ... 1 gallon per occupant. The Pipistrel G4 Taurus is a 4 seater.

"To win the competition, an aircraft must fly 200 miles in less than two hours and use less than one gallon of fuel per occupant, or the equivalent in electricity. If more than one aircraft meets the criteria, first place will go to the team with the best combination of speed and efficiency. "
