Though the Panamericana 2006 drivers won’t be stuffed as tight in their biodiesel-powered VW Touaregs as those MINI Cooper drivers in their trek from South Africa to England, they still won’t have it easy as they head from Deadhorse, Alaska to the tip of South America in 15 days. According to sibling site AutoblogGreen, the nine-member, three-SUV fleet will drive 24/7, each driver taking five-hour shifts behind the wheel. The journey, which is meant to promote biodiesel, is documented on the Panamericana 2006 website.
