"There have been races around the world in the past, but Terra Prix is a completely new kind of race. Terra-Pax and the International Prototype Racing Federation are challenging teams to build 1 race vehicle and at least 1 airborne support craft that can make the voyage around the world - A voyage of almost 51,000 miles (82,000Km). There will be a total of five checkpoints where teams can stock up on supplies and parts. Other than those checkpoints teams must be self sufficient and carry enough provisions to complete the race."
