EV track days are more popular than those of petrol supercars
This was the conclusion of the report done by TrackDays.co.uk.
Research conducted by TrackDays.co.uk has shown that bookings for driving electric supercars on the track have been outpacing those of conventional supercars with internal combustion engines.
For example, bookings for the Tesla Model S ‘Ludicrous’ P90D - which can do 0-60 in 2.6sec - have grown by 10% in the last 3 months. Similarly, bookings for the similarly-fast BMW i8 have risen by 20% over a similar period.
This announcement comes after the arrival of the fastest accelerating car on the planet: the electric hypercar Aspark Owl, which can do 0-60 in just 1.72sec.
Operations manager at TrackDays.co.uk Dan Jones commented on these figures, “Whether it’s on the road or on the track, there’s no stopping the EV charge.”
I think that this takeover of super-fast EVs was predicted back in the early 2010s when we got the electric Mercedes SLS with a bright green visibility jacket as its body, so I don’t think anyone should be surprised that super-fast EVs are incredibly popular.
