Whew. This World Cup bizzo is getting very tiring. If you’re in Europe and watching these games during the daylight or early evening hours, then please spare me a thought. I was up until after 3a.m. this morning watching Switzerland and France play out a 0-0 draw.
If posting is erratic over the next week or so, you know why….
Saab won an award for the 9-5 Biopower at the Michelin Challenge Bibendum 2006, held earlier this month.
The aim of this event is to provide leaders of opinion and decision-makers – political representatives, media, industrialists – with impartial information on the latest technological advances in the field of environment-friendly vehicles. The Challenge Bibendum does not set out to provide solutions, but to highlight the most significant advances. It helps understand, in very concrete terms, via demonstrations, what the different technological fields are and how they fit into the global picture…..
…..The contest between the different energy sources takes place within the framework of a friendly, but perfectly defined competition. The vehicles are evaluated in real driving conditions, using precisely defined criteria (choice of performances related to the environment and overall vehicle safety).
Most of the cars at this event were slower than a wet week, but given that the Saab’s enviro-friendliness means it’s actually faster, it’s no surprise that it won the award for best acceleration and braking.
Thanks for the comments on Sonett III info.
Chris recommended a few books that are now out of print and quite rare. Perhaps their rarity is reflected in their prices, in US$ from Amazon.com.
