    The article is in German, but covers a short distance time race between EV's and ICE's. Minutes before the racing started there was a tropical rainstorm which left the cars racing through water. Eberhard wins in his yellow Roadster, pushing race driver Axel Ress into second place. Constantin in his white Roadster came in third. There is a short video with the article which unfathomably doesn't focus on the Roadsters.

    Looks like that go-cart lost traction on the painted part of the strip. Good thing his left front wheel automatically went into brake mode. :biggrin:

    Since now Eberhard was known as the one who can get easily 400 km out of his Roadster. Now he has proven he can handle his car in a complete different way too. What a man! :cool: :wink:
