Two days ago, four teams hailing from Australia, Switzerland, South Korea and Germany set out from Geneva to race around the globe in a mere eighty days.  Unlike previous world races The Zero Race teams must undertake the thirty-thousand kilometer trip using electric, emission-free vehicles.

Aside from making use of sustainable vehicles operating on renewable energy, The Zero Race team will also take carbon neutrality measures to make up for the greenhouse gas emissions which can’t be avoided during the journey.  Crossing sixteen countries, the racing teams will stop off at the UN Climate Change Conference in Cancun towards the end of the race.  So far German Team Vectrix lead the pack.
