REFUEL 2013 Clean Power Motorsports Event (6/30/13)

Ok, so, I’m a new EV enthusiast and I was all confused when I found out EV race cars were at the Pikes Peak event (I already posted that a BEV placed 5th), and REFUEL EV event was going on the same weekend, I couldn’t find live coverage, I didn’t understand  what was going on and my head was spinning O_o. Why have these events at the same time? In any case, the REFUEL event is open only to clean powered vehicles and has several categories, cars, 2-wheelers, karts and sport electric TT (see: )

So, I got ambitious and thought I’d make youtube playlists from the REFUEL events, however, I found plenty of coverage after the event, so, instead I have decided to post a single video here (let’s promote the little guys) and give you links to some  coverage I came across, and let you peruse on your own. Maybe next year I can attend or maybe even race! 🙂
