The Hood River Electric Car Rally in Hood River Saturday was “the best ever,” said Jeff Blackman, HRVHS teacher and e-car program advisor. Fine weather, no major crashes and a spirit of sportsmanship helped the rally succeed, Blackman said. Sean Crompton of HRVHS, above, won the 11th annual rally, in which 48 cars drove a downtown course for one hour, with the most laps winning the race. At right, cars approach, and then take, the Wasco-Industrial Way hairpin. For details, including video of the rally, go to www.hood-rivernews.com.
