This chart illustrates comparisons among the distances driven by various wheeled vehicles on the surface of Earth's moon and Mars. Of the vehicles
shown, the NASA Mars rovers Opportunity and Curiosity are still active and the totals for those two are distances driven as of May 15, 2013.
Opportunity is actually at 35.76 km (!), less than 2 km from the record of the old 1973 Lunokhod 2 (USSR)
It could be fun one day to see a robotic rover race on Mars ...
