This annual gathering brings together the electric vehicle conversion enthusiasts for “nearly a week of educational sessions, shopwork, autocross and drag races, car shows, and general EV mayhem,” says EVCCON’s website.

Now that the event is over (until next year, that is), we can reveal that the EV West crew, with its converted electric M3, swept all the racing action.

This was the first year that EV West attended the event, so to win all the races is certainly an achievement.

Before pushing you off to view that race-filled video, we should point out that EV West’s M3 put out like 342 hp and 850 pound-feet of torque!!!  Enjoy.
