Redstone Energy, headed by former three-star General James Pillsbury and co-founder Rick Skelton have joined forces with SCORE, the organization that puts on the annual Baja 1000 trans-desert race. Their goal is to demonstrate that if a battery-powered vehicle can handle 1000 miles of Baja desert, it is good enough to get you to work. And being that the race is in the desert, solar power is going to play a major role in recharging these off-road EV’s.
That is to say, if every team were running solar-powered EV’s.Of course the days of pure-electric Baja 1000’s are still a long ways off. But the Redstone-Sun Cup will hopefully spur innovation and show racing fans the power of the sun and electric vehicles.Source: SCORE International | Image: Big Coop
