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!
So, I didn’t stick around to see who won, but I just loved this event and hope to see it back in Madrid next year. And please, can someone buy me that green one, please?
