Driver Marcelo da Luz Robbed In New Orleans
Back in November of 2008 we first informed our readers about Canadian Marcelo da Luz and his registered-in-Barbados solar car. For background, you can read our article Barbados Solar Powered Auto Breaks World Record For Distance.
Mr. da Luz is now heading back to the Arctic Circle from New Orleans where he had a bad experience that left him about ten thousand dollars poorer after a thief broke into his support van and stole wallets, cash, cameras and electronics.
According to reports, Mr. da Luz is still upbeat and has started his long drive back to the Arctic. We wish him good luck and lots of sunshine.
