The ‘Wild Mercurial Documentary’ Behind Hyundai Team R’s 3,147 Km Race Across Australia

“Plan-less” documentary maker follows Hyundai on its victorious Darwin-Adelaide transcontinental Global Green Challenge

Australia (PRWEB) February 4, 2010 — Documentary maker Tony Wilson follows Hyundai on its victorious Darwin-Adelaide transcontinental Global Green Challenge. The Hyundai Santa Fe R took on one of the toughest challenges towards the end of last year which ran across Australia from Darwin to Adelaide.

The Global Challenge, which took place 24-31 October 2009, is a competition to identify the world’s green energy vehicles. Competing vehicles – which include environmental-friendly cars from various manufacturers – are measured on fuel consumption and efficiency.

The documentary film behind Hyundai Team R’s entry to the 3,147 Km race across Australia by Tony Wilson, gives an insight into the stress, chaos, worry and fun which the team had on its way to winning the competition’s SUV category.

Behind the scenes of Hyundai Team R’s Global Green Challenge race were not always smooth. Tony Wilson describes the filming of this documentary making as being “wild and mercurial”. “The plan is to keep it plan-less,” he confidently claims shortly before admitting “I don’t know where we are!”

The chaotic behind-the-scenes footage shows how the fuel efficient Santa Fe R beat off intense competition to win the SUV category with an outstanding fuel consumption rate of 5.1L/100km, consuming just 60.46 litres of diesel fuel and a low 137.67 grams of CO2 per kilometre.
