The above image is of The Electric Hornet developed by our friends "True Cousins", that I have written about before in connection to their electric Drag Race Bike called "Silver Giant" (see below) that currently holds a world record as being the fastest in its category. Read about it in THIS post. 

On September 10th 2011, the department within the Copenhagen Municipality called "Grønne Erhverv" translated to "Copenhagen Green Business Network", will produce a a day filled with action and fun for the whole family, including the above HORNET, that will be in a Drag Race agains a gasoline guzzling classic Corvette.

The above video is from 2009 when CO2 E - Race in collaboration with Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix produced the first Electric Drag Race in Copenhagen between the Danish Electric LYNX and the US Electric Tesla. LYNX is also the provider of batteries for the Silver Giant as people in the Green Car area in the small country of Denmark are all one big family! (My couisin even works for Tesla here in Denmark!)

The above poster (click on it to enlarge) is to tell about the Smart Phone APP and Photo Competetion Element that CO2 E - Race have developed for the day, in collaboration with the programmer Henrik Gilvad. By scanning your Smart Phone over the QR Code, you automaticly download the APP and when you take photos with the APP on, they will be uploaded to a site where Yrs Truly will select the best photos of the day and post them on the Facebook Page belonging to Grønne Erhverv. The winner of the best photo will win tickets to a theater play called "Cykelmyggen Egon" (Egon The Bike Mosquito).

The day is part of another "Green Car" event between Denmark and Sweden called "Oresunds Rally"
that is "designed to help put the Oresund region on the world map" as their site says.
