Racing Green DVD

Friday, March 11th, 2011

The epic 3 hour long BBC World News documentary series about the RACING GREEN electric car world record is now available on DVD. It was a privilege to have been part of this pioneering clean-tech expedition and I’m sure the RACING GREEN story will turn into a landmark in the history of the automotive industry. Please spread the word!

Racing Green

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

1st of January 2011 – BBC World News broadcast Racing Green – Episode 1 – a great start of the New Year! – Now I’m busy with 4 top editors to cut the next 7 episodes. They will be shown on Saturdays and Sundays between 1st of January and 20th of February 2011.
The DVD will be on sale in March 2011 – if you pre-order the Racing Green DVD I will add your name to the ‘supporters’ credit in the DVD – a very tangible way to associate yourself with this ‘clean-tech world record’ – no doubt, RACING GREEN is a landmark in the history of the automotive industry.
