Tour de M25

Congratulations to Imperial College (www3.imperial.ac.uk/newsandeventspggrp/imperialcollege/newssummary/news_27-5-2010-12-26-15) for completing two whole circuits of the London Orbital M25 on one battery charge of their Racinggreen electric car (www.racinggreenendurance.com/). Not surprisingly to those familiar with this road (or car park?) the team started the feat at the sensible hour of 2-30am, doing the 250 miles at a speed of 55-60 mph.
