Racing to the Power Point in Birdsville

When 2,000 electric cars towing caravans descend on the Birdsville races, where do they charge their batteries overnight?

  1. The cars will each need to carry generators (petrol/diesel/gas). Perhaps generators could be powered by distilled Urinol from the local pubs? For those without generators they will need to organise an electricity auction – those who pay the most will get their cars charged first. Perhaps some could harness the racehorses to a treadmill to power an alternator/generator and produce about 40% of one horsepower (746 Watts) per hour. The horse would need to work for many days to enable a car to depart from Birdsville to another town.
