European electric rally: E-Miglia 2011 (video + gallery)

11/08/2011
After the article on the first day of this year’s event lets have a closer look to the next stages.

The second day of the E-miglia 2011 was the most challenging of the event with a 267km stage of winding road, from Mittersill to Bolzano through the famous Grossglockner mountain road (which unfortunately could not take place in optimal conditions ).

Indeed, while the 31 vehicles were charging during the night in Mittersill, the electricity demand was too high for this small town and caused a power cut on the chargers of 13 participants...
Therefore the only timed part has been the Grossglockner special, a 12.7km climb to be completed in less than 15min.

The third stage from Bolzano to Engadin, was highly anticipated by the participants as a track test was organized during the day.
