Friday’s X PRIZE Finals Stage Range Event

Both E-tracers completed the 100 mile Range Event.  The AC Propulsion powered E-Tracer #79 ran in the afternoon and had to do 1 additional penalty lap (as all the other vehicles in the same run) due to cabin temperatures above 95°F.  We had not installed air conditioning in the prototype E-Tracers which is in the plans for the production versions.  The vehicles that ran in the morning Range Event enjoyed cooler temperatures and would have experienced the same 1 lap penalty if running in the hotter afternoon.  Both E-Tracers are now being recharged and will be stored for the weekend.   The next event will be the acceleration run, braking test, and double lane-change maneuver on Monday.
best, Felix
