Good thing our friends at Green Car Reports read Dutch. We hope.

Apparently, three Nissan Leaf electric vehicles tag-team traveled more than 7,700 miles across 10 countries across northern Europe in six weeks as part of an effort to promote Bridgestone's Ecopia Tires.

The teams started in Amsterdam earlier this summer and hit Poland, the Ukraine, Russia, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark before finishing up in London just prior to the Olympic Games, according to the Oranje Trophy website. No, we're not sure what the tenth country was. In any case, the team competed for something called the Oranje (Orange) Trophy, driving more than 370 miles per day. The teams got quick charges from a charge station was mounted on a truck that also made the trip. No word on whether to drivers finished off the tires with some smokey burnouts in the UK.
