The Greaseball Challenge
charity car rally is kicking off this week with a launch party on Thursday and to celebrate Emily Horgan
and her team have launched the official Greaseball website
. Four teams are leaving from Washington, D.C. in two Mercedes
, a VW Rabbit
and a van while a fifth team departs from Denver, Colorado in a pick-up. Grease for fuel is being supplied this week by the World Bank and the Hard Rock cafe.
One of the entries, Team ZERO, manufactures hydrogen cars
in Norway while other nationalities represented in the rally include the U.S., U.K., Belgium, Sweden, and South Africa.
Analysis: It should be a lot of fun to keep up with the Greaseballers' adventures on their way down through Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
