Torrential tropical rains, political instability and epic shock-absorber-snapping potholes. Those are just a few of the obstacles that lay in the path of the Racing Green Endurance (RGE) crew as they battled to drive their unique Radical SRZero (SR0) the 16,000 mile length of the Pan American Highway. And after 140 days, including 70 days of actual driving, they have successfully completed the Alaska-to-Argentina expedition, becoming the first to do so with a battery-powered vehicle. After takin

It's only been 14 days since leaving their official starting point at Chena Hot Springs in Alaska, but the Racing Green Endurance (RGE) team has already driven through the largest U.S. state, the entire length of British Columbia and have crossed back in to America. Along the way they've faced long empty stretches of highway, at least one torrential downpour, a grizzly bear and many monster-like mosquitoes. Perhaps they'd arrived in the lower 48 a day sooner but for their first real breakdown oc

The Racing Green Endurance (RGE) team had their all-electric Radical SRZero (SR0) officially approved for highway use a few weeks back and have been busy putting their road-legal status to good use. Seeing as they are an "endurance team" with sights set on traveling the entire 15,000 mile length of the Pan-American highway, what better way to work out any potential bugs then by attempting a few feats closer to home? None, we think. And so, encouraged by a successful two-lap trip around the Londo

How fast can a battery-powered car travel the entire 16,000+ mile length of the Pan-American highway? We don't really know but it looks like we're going to find out. The Racing Green Endurance team, hailing from Imperial College London, are putting together an all-electric version of the Radical SR8 (now an SR0) to demonstrate to the world the possibilities of this powertrain. What better backdrop for such a spectacle than the world's longest highway? Ok, there is that Zero Emission Race around
