The journey is expected to start this winter and the main helpers of the team are several ice-riders that run on biofuel.
These vehicles will help the 11 members of the team complete its 40-days journey in the tough conditions.
It would be interesting to note that the Moon-Regan Transantarctic Expedition was initiated with the goal of studying the impact of global climate change on the icy continent.
Each of the team’s E85-fueled Bio-Inspired Ice Vehicles features a 100hp four-cylinder Rotax 914 engine and weights 1,500 pounds.
An eco-friendly ice-rider that is going to be used in the expedition drives a three-blade prop with variable pitch. The vehicle runs atop 3 skis, each featuring an independent suspension system.
There’s one drawback – one vehicle has space only for the driver.
