    Three years ago David Peilow and I drove from John o' Groats to Land's End in ~30 hours in my Tesla Roadster using public charging.

    This year we hope that 5+ Roadsters will make the reverse trip from Land's End to John o' Groats in ~24 hours using public charging. Prizes for the quickest trip time and lowest energy consumption will be given. The route and charging strategy are up to the teams and IMO this is where the event will be won or lost.

    The exact date is to be confirmed but I wanted to get a place holder out there and suggested start dates are Tuesday 9th September and Tuesday 16th September.

    ZCW hope to offer subsidised accommodation with slow charging for the nights before and after the event.

    Send me a PM if you're interested in joining us :smile:
