Coda To Run In 2012 Clean Fuel Competition

The CODA REFUEL team will be competing this Sunday, July 1, in the 2012 Clean Fuel Motorsports event taking place at Laguna Seca in Monterey, Calif.

The team will run with other EV enthusiasts in a Sport-Electric Time Trial open track event, starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 5 p.m.

REFUEL 2012 is the 4th annual clean power motorsports event that brings electric car and motorcycle enthusiasts together to showcase their all-electric innovations – from production vehicles, prototypes, conversions, and purpose-built race cars and bikes – in a motorsports setting.

With a shared passion for speed and all-electric cars, the CODA REFUEL team came together after hours to build a CODA suitable for the event. With help from sponsors and close to no budget, the team adapted a pre-production vehicle with donated parts to transform the car into an all-electric trackday vehicle.

The team did all the work on their personal time to build the racing vehicle. They incorporated a higher speed motor and modified driveline software, upgraded brakes, racing seats and harnesses, and sports suspension.

    Not a bad looking car. The only thing I would have added to the car would be a full 6 point roll cage.

    Would be interesting to know how the event works. For example, do the cars run around the track from 8am to 5pm or do you do a few laps, then another class of EV goes on the track?

    I, too, am interested in this event. I assume it would be more than a few laps though.
