14 October 2011 – Perth based Glen George arrived in Hyde Park on Friday, as part of Guinness World Record Attempt to be the first person to circumnavigate Australia in an electric car.

Pictured here with Sydney Lord Mayor  Clover Moore, Mr George has already driven his 1950s MG more than 9000 kilometres since 21 August last year and claims the trip so far has cost only $300 in energy since he left Perth. He is currently heading back to Perth along the southern Australian coast, planning to complete the trip on 13 November.
