PANAMERICANA Expedition

PROJECT GOAL
With the project one of the world visible sign of the use of fuels from renewable resources has been set. Together with a large alliance of support we have drawn the energy consumers and energy suppliers to the enormous potential of energy from renewable resources and to promote their use!

 

To demonstrate the practicality of bio fuels, team extreme adventures of Matthias Yeshke passed the longest and most spectacular road in the world: 25.000 km long Panamericana. After one year preparation time, this trip had to show an impressive conquest of the north route from Alaska to southern Tierra del Fuego for the first time with the use of biofuels to reach the world record for the subjugation of less than 16 days. Join nine men, with their three vehicles in the world record time of 15 days, 11 hours and 25 minutes with their spectacular journey from the northern to the southern polar seas. Travel with them through 14 countries, ice and sand deserts, jungles, snow and debris, and explore the Americas in fast motion during the expedition. Enjoy the charm of a unique dream road - Panamericana. A film by Hendrik Pfefferkorn.
