Tesla Roadsters Go Out On A Limb In ALL JAPAN EV-GP Series Round 6 (w/video)
In early November, the ALL JAPAN EV-GP Series held its Round 6, which should be last round but after the postponement of Round 5, but it wasn’t.
In the Round 6 race held at Sodegaura Forest Raceway, 9 cars took off from the starting line, compared to just four in the previous round.
Again, we see two Teslas against several Nissan LEAFs, one Mitsubishi i-MiEVs and some conversions.
In the race, last on the grid was one of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV’s drivers who had a delayed start
to give the rest a head start and let them lap him more then once.
What’s interesting this time around is that one converted EV (#39) was nearly as fast as the more powerful Tesla. In fact, the converted EV beat one Tesla to the finish line to place 2nd overall. In the #1 spot was the other Tesla.
