Going to the Electrathon/HPV Event at PIR

Last weekend, I took the Civic-EV to Portland International Raceway to show it off at the Electrathon/Human-Powered Vehicles event there. Memorial Day weekend is the one weekend that PIR can't make any loud noises, so they actively recruit electric vehicles and bicycles of all types to race.

Here's Gary's Honda Insight EV with lithium ion batteries and an Siemens AC motor.

This shows some of the velomobiles (encased recliner cycles) present at the event. They really fly.

Here's my humble Civic next to Paul B's Corbin Sparrow.

It was really hot that weekend, but the new controller held up well on the freeway.
