Brad, a tech for Toyota of Wilmington, took the controls for two runs with a low time of 49 seconds. His first drive in an EV, Brad was impressed with how well the MR2 performed. He definitely had an "EV grin"! The fastest time of the day was in the low 40's, so we did very well against our gas powered competition.

The EV 11 team has spent two days displaying the EV's at the 2010 Hampstead Spot Festival. Thousands of visitors stopped by for fun, festivities and a Spot fish dinner. We had hundreds of very interested visitors stop by our display for information on our project. This event is the largest one we have locally, and it draws quite a crowd. Our push this year was to inform of how we intend to raise funds for a Lithium battery transplant in the MR2. Hopefully, we can raise enough money to buy a new Lithium battery pack.
