Battery beach burnouts to promote EVs in Miami and San Diego next weekend

Time for some EV fun time in Florida! The Florida Electric Auto Association (FLEAA), in conjunction with Vectrix and AC Propulsion, will be hosting the 3rd Annual "Battery Beach Burnout," an EV competition, in Miami, FL at Countyline Dragway January 25th and 26th.
The event (which is free) has a full assortment of competitions for EVs: a drag race, auto-cross, scooter-cross and a show 'n shine event.

The organizers' goal is to raise awareness of the current state of EVs and show their performance. The event displays and promotes alternative greener technologies to power vehicles and will include the showcase of famous EV cars such as Monster Garage's Milwaukee Tool V28 Electric 1962 Chevy and the ProEV Subaru Impreza, Patterson Cycles' custom electric motorcycles and an AC Propulsion eBox and the Vectrix electric motorcycle.

On the same weekend, Electric Vehicle Association of San Diego will be holding its own EV drag racing and autocross competition, Electric Dragin', at Barona Drag Strip in San Diego. There will be a joint east-coast/west-coast media link-up and simulcast for parts of the dual events.

If any AutoblogGreen readers are going to be attending either of these events and want to send up pictures, you know what to do.
