This past weekend, Daihatsu apparently sponsored a day of EV racing at Japan's Tsukuba Circuit. Based on our Google-translated interpretation of the source article, it appeared that there were 30-minute race sessions for classes that ranged from EV karts to full-blown EV conversions of regular vehicles. In addition, to the normal racing, there was also a time trial competition, and it appears that a student class was added this year (it's an annual event). We wish we had more info, but is lean on the details, and translating from the Japanese sites is always a bit tricky. One thing's for sure, though: it looks like a good time was had by all.
