PPHC Electrification Efforts for 2021
From our club member Chris Lennon:
I hope the holidays have been good for you.
are moving full steam ahead with our EV effort for Pikes Peak. We got a
new eight-motor powertrain into the car a couple of weeks ago, and did
an initial shakedown. It was extremely fast, and we are pleased. We are
planning our first full on-track test this Saturday, at La Junta
wanted to invite you down to the test if you were interested, and also
wanted to see if you had any suggestions of natural matches in terms of
sponsorship of our effort, now that the time has come to commit to the
race (in every sense, including financially). As you can imagine, we can
use all the help we can get, and over the years, have found that
there’s no replacement for personal connections/intros for getting
sponsors excited about getting on board. We are connected in with the
CREA (Colorado Rural Electric Association), which is a good local
tie-in. If there are folks in the EV community who might get excited
about this, and be interested in individual or company-based
sponsorships, I’d love to invite them down to this and/or future tests!
