"Environmentally progressive sport"

A Portland man will travel next month to Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats to drive an electric race car (fashioned in his basement!) at the World of Speesd 2008 event. C. Michael Lewis will drive his 10-foot-long, one-person vehicle around a closed-loop course for one hour, to see how far he can get on one kilowatt-hour of battery. In the past, he’s gotten 53 miles, a national record for Electrathon, an organization aimed at advancing both the technology and public awareness of electric vehicles.
