Lemons Is Doing More To Advance Electric Racing Than Le Mans

Lemons Is Doing More To Advance Electric Racing Than Le Mans

A little over a year ago the 24 Hours of Lemons introduced a $50,000 prize for the first team to win one of the series’ many races on full electric power. In order to make such a thing even remotely possible, the series exempted the cost of EV powertrains from its series-wide $500 budget cap. Thus far only two teams have even attempted to race EVs in Lemons, but progress is being made and it...

For the first time ever, at the 11th Annual One Pro motorcycle dirt flat track race, the pros went head to head on race bikes powered purely by electricity.

The competitive spirit of humans isn’t dulled by...

Ken Block Ran The Extreme E Electric Race Truck In The Last Stage Of The Dakar Rally And Did Pretty Okay

Extreme E is the off-road electric racing series from the people who brought you Formula E, and the Odyssey 21 is the buggy-like SUV which will form the basis of the series. The folks behind Extreme E invited Head Hoon Ken Block out to rip around the Saudi desert in one of these for a one-day test and then enter the final stage (stage 12) of the Dakar outside of Riyadh.

The rally version retains the 134 horsepower front-wheel-drive electric motor and...

This Electric-Powered Porsche 911 RSR Was the Coolest Pikes Peak Racer This Year

Anything shaped like an old Porsche is bound to grab my attention, but when it’s powered by electricity I’m cutting a bee line to go see it. This all electric 911 Pikes Peak racer really grabbed my attention ahead of the event, but it absolutely blew my mind when I first laid eyes on it during the Fan Fest on the Friday evening before the race. It’s got a really unique layout that I’ve never...
