PPHC Electrification Efforts for 2021

 From our club member Chris Lennon:

========================

Hi Wilson:

I hope the holidays have been good for you.

 We 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 Raceway.

 I 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!

 Chris
