    I remember seeing the first two desert races on an episode of _NOVA_ on PBS. I was amazed at the progress made. I also felt bad for the motorcycle team (Ghost Rider). They had an innovative machine and it only failed because of a small mistake right at the start.

    When I heard Grand Challenge, I had a cat-like grin on my face as I remembered the Hummer H1, called H1ghlander. That was my favorite car for a long time. It was in the 2005 Grand Challenge. The Hummer H1 still sits as one of my favorite cars of all time, in part because of H1ghlander :D
