As the Progressive Automotive X Prize (PIAXP) competition enters the "Knockout Qualifying Stage," organizers are seeking your participation. The public is being invited to vote for their favorite vehicle in four different categories from now until the 6th of September. You can vote every day and, in case you need motivation, the organizers are offering up a grand prize of $3,000 for a randomly chosen entry and one stylish PIAXP jacket will also be awarded for each fan favorite category. The first voting is for "most stylish," to be followed in a few weeks by "most innovative," then "most practical" and, finally, "most wanted." The more you enter, the better your chances.
The ever-evolving Automotive X Prize website helps you keep tabs on how many votes you've entered but also has some other great new features. You can now track certain teams or vehicles and watch live streaming performance results. Team pages give their current competition status, their fan ranking as well as pics and links to all the usual social media site suspects. To top it off, there is even live streaming video from the Michigan International Speedway where all the action is happening. The knockout stage begins in earnest this Monday.
Update: Added video from X Prize explaining updated website features after the break.
