The Electric Vehicle Association of San Diego (EVAoSD) will host an electric-drive drag racing event 26-27 January 2008, open to electric, hybrid, and fuel cell vehicles.
I am tired of the same old rhetoric of electric cars coming in a few more years. The technology is here today and you can see electric-drive on the track. There is no reason we can’t drive cleaner today.—Bill Hammons, President of Electric Vehicle Association of San Diego
This event will have vendors, electric-drive owners, and competitors showing off the future of transportation by reducing pollution without losing the power and excitement of racing, according to the EVAoSD.
Electric drive vehicle owners can register online at www.electricdragin.com for the event.
Technology has always stemmed from racing and now that the tides are turning away from gas, we can show people exactly what exists today to take its place. We have new technology batteries, electric motors, controllers, and drive systems that can change our dependency on foreign oil, this event will showcase exactly what comes from those who refuse to think inside the box.—Joseph Gottlieb of Electra-City Motors, a ZAP electric car dealer
