All-electric dragster exceeded 320 km / h for the first timeMay 18, 2020
The record on the 402 m long track was set by the Current Technology electric car
An electric car with the talking title Current Technology, driven by drag racing enthusiast Steve Huff, has a chance of being in the Guinness Book of Records. He became the first dragster to exceed a speed of 320 km / h on a 402 m long track. For those who are not aware of the specifics of drag racing, it is worth making a note explaining the “non-circular” values. Drag racing is popular in the USA, where it is still customary to measure distances in miles. The main distance for sprint rides is a 1/4 mile or 402 meter length, and the speed above is approximately 200 mph (in fact, 201 mph or 323.5 km / h was recorded in one of the two races).
The capacity of the power plant of the current technology electric car reaches 1950 hp, and the torque exceeds 1350 Nm.
