A century after Grand Prix racing started in Pau, the French town has
staged the world's first Electric Grand Prix.
All 12 entries used the same vehicle, the Exagon-built Andros racing car.
Originally designed for racing on ice, the car can reach speeds of 112
miles per hour.
Winding through the picturesque town of Pau, the 1.7 mile course hasn't
changed much over the decades.
Its winding route through the town has earned it comparisons with
But it's Pau that has the honor of having hosted the very first Grand Prix
The resort in southwestern France, just 31 miles from the Spanish border,
is a proven testing ground for future Formula 1 world champions on Formula
2, 3 or 3000 vehicles.
For the die-hard motor sports fans raised on the roar of high-powered
petrol engines on full throttle, electric car racing might seem a little
But others found the low-pitched whine -- a bit like a jet engine but much
quieter -- a pleasant change from the ear-splitting roar of the traditional
Participants included Nicolas Prost, the son of France's Formula 1 World
champion Alain Prost, as well as Fabien Barthez, the former goalkeeper who

Can an Electric car beat a F3 race car?
Honestly!!! typical Myth Buster BS.
They used some trick video editing to try and cover up the fact they used a
rolling start on a drag strip. (I've never heard of rolling start drag
EVs are unbeatable off a standing start so to rig the race, the myth BSers
specified a rolling start.
The only fair comparison is to run both rolling and standing starts, but
then being fair isn't their gig.

Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $2.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.

Dual Motor Electric Vehicle Drivetrain With Powerglide 2 Speed Transmission Walkthrough by EV West
Here's a brief 10 minute video that gives a nice overview of the EV West 2
speed Powerglide transmission that runs without a torque converter direct
drive to 2 coupled Warp 11 motors. Depending on the voltage and current,
these twin motors can put out well over 1000 lb/ft of torque, and 600+ horsepower. We used
this motor and transmission combination to power our BMW M3 to the summit
of Pikes Peak in 2012 setting an all time record for street legal electric
cars. The strength and reliability of this system is key. For more
