X-Prize up for grabs again... $10million again...

well, if any of you know about the last X-Prize, it was $10million awarded to the company who could build, launch, relaunch, and recover a privately build space craft (to sum it up).

they are at it again with another $10million in cash; but this time it's an auto race across the US... but your car has to do a minimum of 100mpg. well, I've summed it up quite a bit... if your interested in watching the competition, check it out here...

Well. Dead car, enough batteries, and an old forklift motor.
