John Bowe to drive ELMOFO Electric Radical

Australian Motorsport Legend, John Bowe, will be driving our ELMOFO Electric Radical at the Shannons National Race Event this Sunday at Sydney Motorsport Park (Eastern Creek).

John will be doing some familiarisation laps prior to 9:00am and will do some demonstration laps at 9:50am where he will likely set an Electric Track Record for Eastern Creek.

We have had it back on the dyno today. With the power now wound up, the car should be capable of some pretty serious lap times and there is a lot of media lined up to check it out and to interview John Bowe.

Let's hope it all goes to plan and his first electric race vehicle experience is a positive one.

Cheers,
Sutho

Pushing 900amps on a 350v bus @ 230kph Brett's creation purrs like a kitten. I have finally made my pilgrimage to Eastern Creek, it was worth it.

Perhaps the name should be changed?

El mofo
the young ones will like the name

Similar to the nova
No va = no go

Or qashqai. Sounds like cash cow
Hence nissan changed it to dualis

Pajero in Spanish
Although some 4wd / cuv / suv owners seem to be more aggressive and deserve the term

The ELMOFO Radical was seen very very briefly on last week's Speedweek on SBS. Hope that wasn't it.
