Madrid Eco City

This past weekend, we had the pleasure of going to Madrid Eco City Event that took place in the Madrid Rio. In case you hadn’t heard, Madrid Eco City is a conference that discusses the feasibility of creating an eco-friendly city, mainly using electric or solar powered cars.

The conference was on Thursday with a lot of Spain’s regional mayors and representatives discussing what they are doing to encourage a green lifestyle in terms of transport in their communities.

But, the coolest part was the car race on Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately, it rained on Saturday and I don’t think they had much of an event, but Sunday was awesome!

The competition took place throughout the day with each car circulating 9 times (about 1.7 kilometers) around Casa de Campo. Some puttered a little bit, while others zoomed, but the design of each car was just so unique and well, just so awesomely cute!
