    Hi EVeryone,

    The 12th Annual Power of DC is coming up August 18-19 in Maryland.

    We'll be drag racing Saturday at Capitol Raceway at noon and the SCCA AutoCross Sunday, just after noon at FedEx Field, where the Redskins play.

    Last year, the AutoCross was filmed by MotorWeek. You can see the coverage from the Power of DC website.

    Cost for racing at Capitol Raceway is $40 at the gate per racer and $10 for spectators.Racing starts at noon.

    Pre-Registration is required for the AutoCross which is being set up by the Washington DC Chapter of the SCCA. Cost is $100. Visit the following link to register. Select "EV" for the Class. You have to be pre-registered to race the AutoCross.

    FedEx Field and Capitol Raceway are about 10 miles apart. For hotels, consider something in the Crofton or Bowie area or somewhere outside the Washington DC Beltway (495).

    We will have a generator at Capitol Raceway. There are 10 EV Charging Stations powered by a huge grid-tied solar array so EVs can charge there.

    The photo is an actual photo from our 2009 Power of DC AutoCross with Dave Bollinger behind the wheel of his Tesla. Yes, we do go fast!!!

    Hope to see you there!!!
