EV Cup Supports START Eco Car Trials

EV Cup Support the Start Eco Car Trials with the THINK City Racer. Sponsored to Tag Heuer, Goodenergy and Shell, and in aid of The Prince's Charities and Botteltop, Roger Saul and Kevin McCloud Compete in a point-to-point challenge on the Kilver Court Viaduct.

 

NOTE: The presenter starts it claiming this is "the first electric car race" illustrating ignorance of the history of electric vehicle racing.  EV's have been raced for decades.  But it's clear this was not a serious race event, but a staged media event meant to get publicity.
