Motor Authority » Damon Hill to race Tesla Roadster in London
I hope they unlock the gearbox for "racing". They said the 1.0 tranny would last about 4000 miles so just put in a new one and let him tear it up for 33 miles.
It looks like this is more of a rally/treasure hunt than a race, so the 1 gear set up will be fine.
Does anyone know the route, I can't see it on any web site so far? I want to plan my time off work and viewing point :smile:
I can't help but think with London traffic, the Vectrix might win this!
Depends on the time of day, but you could well be right :biggrin:

So I went down there yesterday. Very interesting couple of hours. Lots of EVs and FCVs in action.

Quote from Damon Hill, 1996 F1 Champion and a man used to a bit of quick acceleration, as he puts his foot down: "That's outrageous!" :smile:
By the way, I had to laugh about this.
I think he said "outrageous" actually
(And yes the vid works from the USA)
Yes he does - you're quite correct. I don't know how that changed from my brain to my typing fingers! Now corrected :smile:
By the way, I was told the car is fitted with DT 1.5. I asked what it was like to drive and the answer was just :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

I hope that last line is a hint :wink:
So, maybe we'll get to see the Hamster in a Tesla after all...
I think the next season/series is in the fall/autumn, so let's see...
