The third annual BC2BC-2014 "All Electric Vehicle Rally", 1500 miles from Mexico to Canada, is planned for August 9, 2014 - August 17, 2014. The start will be in the Los Angeles, California area, however we will drive south to the Mexico border (but not cross it with a car), then on to Vancouver, BC. Bring your passport for Canada and your A game! Again, we will not be entering Mexico with cars, but we will enter Canada.
We are also planning the World's Largest Electric Vehicle Gathering for Sunday morning, August 9, 2014 at our Los Angeles launch site.
If the finances / sponsors work out, we would like to also host rally teams with sponsor supplied car(s). Those teams would consist of folks from EV manufacturers, EV related industry, and government.
As always, your input on proposed rule changes for 2014, cool ideas, etc, are appreciated. This event is primarily to bring awareness to the general public about EVs, and we are all ambassadors in that endeavor. If you have contacts in media along our route, that is probably the single biggest help we could receive.
Our Stages will be:
STAGE I - August 9, 2014 - 641 miles MINIMUM - Irvine, California area start
STAGE II - August 12, 2014 - 637 miles MINIMUM - San Francisco, California area start
