First Round of 2014 Japan EV-GP Series (w/video)
Last month, at Sodegaura Forest Raceway in Japan, the first from six rounds of the 2014 Japan EV-GP Series was held.
The Japan Electric Vehicle Race Association (JEVRA) this time attracted 9 cars, from which most were Nissan LEAFs in the EV-3 category (over 61 kW of power). There was only one lonely i-MiEV and some home-built conversions filling EV-4 and EV-C categories.
Nobody started in the EV-2 or the EV-1 category, which need over 111 kW or over 161 of power, respectively.
The Nissan LEAF easily won the 50 km race (20 laps). Here we have results and video (note that there is one electric smart, probably as a race guest):
