The components alone in the Green Envy streamliner motorcycle will cost almost as much as an average family home! If you want to be part of history, you can “adopt” a part in Green Envy. This means that you either supply the part itself in the form of in-kind sponsorship, or you provide financial support to cover the cost of a specific part. In return, you will get your name on the specific part and you will listed as a supporter.
We are currently specifically looking for supporters of the following parts, but there are many more things we need. If you think you have what we need, please contact me at contact-eva [insert “at” here] greenenvyracing.com. You will – of course – get your name or logo on the Green Envy in exchange!
P.S. If you want to adopt a part, make sure to contact me first to make sure you send the correct type and configuration. If you want to support financially, contact me about the cost.

The fine print: By “adopting” apart you are in reality purchasing advertisement space on the Green Envy for the duration of 2020. You pay for the advertisement space either in-kind with the part, or by providing financial support. The advertisement space is officially sold by Eva’s company “Science Envy Ltd.” which is a limited liability company registered in New Zealand. While we will make every possible effort to get the Green Envy ready for a record attempt in Australia 2020, there are no guarantees in racing. There may be factors outside our control that make the effort unsuccessful. Support will not be re-funded if the record attempt is unsuccessful, sorry.
