EVs win at 2015 race

First and second place in the 2015 Pikes Peak Hill Climb went to EVs.

Rhys Millen wins Pikes Peak under all-electric power

The major remaining impediment to near-complete domination of such events is battery weight... no surprise there. Maybe graphine one day?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
