#NanoCarRace
The NanoCar Race is an event in which molecular machines compete on a nano-sized racetrack. These "NanoCars" or molecule-cars can have real wheels, an actual chassis...and are propelled by the energy of electric pulses! Nothing is visible to the naked eye, however a unique microscope located in Toulouse will make it possible to follow the race. A genuine scientific prowess and international human adventure, the race is a one-off event, and will be broadcast live on the web.

A unique instrument in Toulouse makes this race possible. The racetrack, a plain gold surface, is placed inside a one of a kind scanning tunneling microscope at the CNRS's Centre d'élaboration de matériaux et d'études structurales (CEMES) in Toulouse.
