Smile Montreal - SMCC Economy Run #5 - June 7th, 2014



CLICK HERE FOR THE FLYER WITH ALL THE INFO

Celebrating the 5th anniversary of the revived SMCC Montreal Economy Run! This event is about balancing a spirited drive on interesting roads with fuel economy. Not an easy challenge! We've beat the course record every year, and we hope to again beat the 2.92L/100km brute and 3.15L/100km time-penalized record set by a diesel Smart last year.

There's a shortened 138km route for electric vehicles, and it would be great to see some participate this year too!

The event runs alongside the F1 weekend in Montreal, and it's possible to catch the action. We can help out with accommodations for those coming from out of town.

Hope you can make it and can't wait to see the entry list and mods!

My intentions are to enter with my 2013 Honda Fit EV and be the first EV to participate. Hopefully there will be others as well. Sorry I missed last year Jeff. I only had my EV for a week then and wasn't yet ready to drive it internationally, but I am now.

That's a great view in that picture, where is that?

I have the best intentions of making it this year, but life seems to always find a way to kick my butt in the week leading to all the cool events. Sparing any issues, I'd like to come in my VX Civic.

Sorry for the late reply. For some reason, I no longer get email notifications when a reply is posted.

That picture was taken during an all-EV outing to the top of Mt. Greylock, the highest point in MA last September. We had two Honda Fit EV's, two Nissan Leafs, and one Smart ED [Electric Drive].

Would be very nice if you come blownb310 and 2000neon.

I will come this year again with my 2000 Insight but I will be echo-francis' copilot in the Echo.

Can't wait until June...

I have just sent my former SMCC Economy Run navigator [David] an email asking if he will ride along side me again this year. After missing last year's event, I'm getting excited for this year's.

Been eying those economy runs for the past 2 years, but this year, I think will be the one that I will be attending. Especially since it is soooo close to where I live. A few KMs away actually. Probably 1.5 liters away. (quick! do the math!)

Tomorrow, I should be in possession of my new (to me) 2007 Honda Fit Sport MT. Although I stand no chance at winning, it will be still be an enjoyable eye-opener to what I can and cannot do with my new car in terms of consumption and a chance to meet cool, like-minded people!

I was reading the previous year threads and some people were looking for a place to pitch a tent. If anybody needs a place to pitch their tent this year, I am in Laval (north shore) a few minutes away from Montreal, but still on the north shore. I have a decent sized lot for pitching up a few tents.

A bientot!

Where are you in Laval? Echo-Francis is in Fabreville and I am in Sainte-Rose.

J'ai hāte en maudit!
