    Some of the best marathoners in the world trying to go sub-2 in a marathon on a racetrack in Italy and they are following a Tesla with 2 drivers (one to control speed and one to steer). No exhaust fumes! Another benefit of electric cars.

    p.s. there's actually two Tesla Model S involved in this event, there's a 2nd one following up behind the runners.

    Yup I have been watching the livestream. I am a marathoner aiming for Boston Marathon qualification and I run only in Nike running shoes (Vomero) so definitely rooting for Kipchoge to break 2 hours. The last stretch of a marathon is always the hardest.. hope he holds on.

    Wow, 2.00.23! What a great time! Only 23 seconds short of the 2 hour mark!

    Would a draft effect help the athletes by running behind a car with a huge display on it?
