cloudless sky. Lots of traffic through the EV display and questions, questions, questions. Theo's documentary was a bit of a hit and lots of interest in his car too, especially after featuring front page of the Western Leader and on TV3's nightline.
Mark Yates of Juicepoint brought along the LEAF and was freely offering drives to all and sundry; I must take him up on it one day. Phil Buckley from Formulae brought along the cart for show and tell too. This is a pretty sophisticated little beast featuring a curtis AC controller hooked up to 48v of 55Ah AGM batteries. He is keen to investigate with us the possibility of changing over to lithium but it would represent quite an investment as he has something like 22 or so carts. He would be able to offer longer format races though and hopefully cut the costs of ongoing battery replacements.
The real kicker of the day would have to be the organic sausages from the BBQ stall that set up right behind us, but the woodfired pizza van was pretty good too!
