If you read all the details you will see that they are going to have fuel barges put in those places that are too far apart for the pwcs to make it.
I have never seen a race with that high of an entry fee either but then first place pays out 2 million dollars per team, have not seen that either.
As far as the pre-pay fuel to be a money maker, if you read all the info you will see that the moneys that are not needed will end up going back to the entrants. The way things are going I think I would like to be buying my fuel a year in advance!!!
Nils, Speaking of entry fees, I have 4 sponsors so far for 2500 each so if you would like to help out as a sponsor let me know and I will add you to the list.
As much as I love the RUDE chargers I think I may have to go with an NA unit for this gig.
Lets not bash the guy for dreaming big, He has put alot of time and effort in. I know my team is sure hoping it happens.
