Default Hybrids On Parade. Help break a World Record. July 24. Madison, WI

HYBRIDS UNITE!!!

Come join your Insight friends in helping set a new world record for the Longest Hybrid Car Parade, Sunday morning, July 24 in Madison, WI.

According to Guinness, the current record is only 140 cars that was set in Belgium and I know we can smash through that record.

It's FREE to attend, you'll get a bunch of goodies, plus enjoy the satisfaction of being part of a world record!

Tell all your friends and be sure to bring your camera.

See the Hybrids On Parade (The HOP) signup page for more detail.

The HOP-(Hybrids on Parade), presented by Smart Motors - Eventbrite

See you there!!

Oh, and here's a link to an article about the event:

Quote:
“The features of hybrid vehicles really lend it to a parade situation,” say’s Allen Foster, vice president and general manager at Smart Motors. Even with 500 vehicles traveling over 2+ miles the end result is that they stay in electric mode for all of, or nearly all of the parade.
Sure, electric mode... I could pulse and then glide through the 2+ miles with the engine off

This is on the final day of the Madison HybridFest, which is now known as Green Drive Expo, so I'll already be there. Already 384 people out of the maximum 500 people that can sign up more than a month from the event, it'll be full and I'm assuming mostly Prius cars.

Signed up to participate in the parade w/ my 2011 I2. When I signed up on July 1 they indicated they were 2 entrants away from breaking the Belgium record of 140 cars.

I'm picking up my 2006 in San Antonio on Friday so if I hurry I could be back in time but it sounds like there won't be room anyway.

Actually, there is still 348 spots left. I was hoping to make it a little more leisurely drive back as I learn to drive my car but maybe I'll have to make it.

Unless someone goes wrong on my trip back from SA, I will definitely be there. Will there be a chance for us to meet up? I'd sure like to meet some of the other members here.
