These cars finished 1,2 and 3 in a race held recently. Which race?

This is the DARPA Grand Challenge 2007 also called DARPA Urban Challenge 2007, where the challenge is to take a driver-less autonomous car through a racing track. These cars autonomous meaning there is no dude sitting 100m away with a RF remote controlling the car.

Quoting Mahesh for the rest of the answer

“1st Place – Tartan Racing, Pittsburgh, PA
2nd Place – Stanford Racing Team, Stanford, CA
3rd Place – Victor Tango, Blacksburg, VA”
