Gordon Foat is the Director of Green MotorSport Limited, an award winning company. Earlier this year he was given the 2012 People and Environment Achievement Award for Green Sport.
Green MotorSport is inviting selected sponsors to join in the 2012 World Advanced Vehicle Expedition (WAVE). For a fortnight, commencing on 9th September, electric cars powered by renewable energy will drive from Italy across six European countries to Northern Europe. This adventure will give excellent publicity to Sponsors. It will attract the global media and promote interest in the development of these technologies for future generations.
Louis Palmer, the founding Director of the WAVE has given Gordon Foat once again, the exclusive opportunity to drive for the UK this year in this spectacular display of electric vehicle technology. Last September, during 2011, Gordon drove from Paris to Prague, stopping at 30 cities en route, in the first ever WAVE, collecting an astonishing 4 awards for electric vehicle technology. The WAVE is a leading international event to raise awareness for renewable energies and electric mobility as brilliant solutions for a greener and better future.
20 - 30 teams from as many countries as possible will drive across Europe. Each team must feed electricity from a renewable source, such as wind or solar into the grid in their home country. This shows that each person can produce his own electricity at home from renewable sources and drive in a clean way. En route, the vehicles will withdraw that energy from any power socket. Each participating vehicle must show proof of clean and green energy production from their home country.
The UK's energy sponsor for WAVE 2012 has been confirmed as The Moss Solar Trust which supplied Team GB's renewable solar energy for WAVE in 2011. Green MotorSport offers sponsors a prime position for their logos on our electric car and also on our ‘who's sponsoring us’ page online. The sponsors logo will be linked directly to the website. Each logo will be supported by a paragraph about the company. Events in each city visited will be organized to spread this powerful message to a global audience: Let’s move the whole world to renewable energies and electric mobility!
We will visit governments, business leaders, schools and places of interest. There will be planned media events, a website, car branding and clothes branding. Two or more events are planned every day, each followed by a drive of up to 120 kms. Events will include press announcements, radio and TV interviews, video displays and competitions. The WAVE will be recorded and the pictures sold to television, cable and satellite channels around the world. The WAVE Management is organizing 10 competitions, held on different days in different locations. Prizes will be awarded for various categories, including safety, design and range. Each competition will have a different jury, arranged by the event host for that city. Altogether there will be prizes awarded with a total value of 10,000 Euros.
