The “Sun Trip”, the new Silk Roads, is a fairly unique race / adventure, in the greatest tradition (in 1932, the Yellow Cruise joined Beirut to Beijing to promote a new mobility, the automobile) and the most extreme modernity: today, it is about promoting inexhaustible energy, for mobility. The race is run independently of electricity and without assistance: like a Vendée Globe, each of the 50 participants is free to choose their route. Only solar electric energy is allowed (prohibition of recharging on current), the project is therefore part of a socially responsible investment approach.
