Electric Racing Is Almost Here
heading down the path of hybrid power and alternative fuels.
The one thing that does not yet exist in circuit racing (no pun intended) is a pure electric series. West Race Cars and KleenSpeed have joined forces to build a car that is intended for that type of racing.
Right now electric doesn't seem to be competitive with internal combustion counterparts for long periods due to battery limitations. But depending on how the events are formatted, the actual performance of electric race cars in terms of lap
times could be very competitive.
