The third annual BC2BC-2014, “All Electric Vehicle Rally”, 1500 miles from Mexico to Canada, will take place on August 10, 2014 through August 17, 2014.

The start will be in the Long Beach, California, however we will drive south to the Mexico border (but not cross it with a car), then on to Vancouver, British Columbia. Bring your passport for Canada and your A game! Again, we will not be entering Mexico with cars, but we will enter Canada And you will need a passport.

We are also planning the World’s Largest Electric Vehicle Gathering for Sunday morning, August 10, 2014 at our Long Beach launch site.

If the finances / sponsors work out, we would like to also host rally teams with sponsor supplied car. Those teams would consist of folks from EV manufacturers, EV related industry, and government.

As always, your input on proposed rule changes for 2014, cool ideas, etc, are appreciated. This event is primarily to bring awareness to the general public about EVs, and we are all ambassadors in that endeavor. If you have contacts in media along our route, that is probably the single biggest help we could receive.
