Tom Megan's Porsche

On May 8th, in Watkins Glen, new York, the annual Green Grand Prix will be held by the International Motor Racing Research Center. Two races, one for speed and the other for fuel economy, will be held and are open to all comers with alt-fueled vehicles.

Pictured above is Tom Megan of Redwood, New York who plans to race his 1965 Prosche 356G which runs on bio-diesel.

The races take place on the school campus' 80 mile perimeter and the speed race is the only Sports Car Club of America rally held in the U.S.

The fuel economy race is presented by race-cars.com and offers competitors the ability to attempt to set and beat records in various categories.
