The Team-Name

can best be translated "french-frie-express". It leads on the one hand back to our main sponsor, a popular fast food restaurant chain from Duisburg. On the other hand we will partly power the car with used vegetable oil from these restaurants. So our slogan "with french-fries-oil to africa" has got a double meaning.
