Electric Camaro Drag Racer Seeks Kickstarter Funding For Video Series
Drag racing has been thrilling motorsports fans for decades, but new revelations in electric vehicles has allowed drag racing to branch off in a new quiet, but just-as-fast direction. But the world of electric drag racing has not received as much attention as it maybe deserves, though the owner of a pure electric Camaro dragster aims to change that with a new Kickstarter-funded video series.
We’ve written about Ron Adamowicz and his pure electric Camaro dragster, the Warp Factor III, before. Since making his nearly-single-digit run down the dragstrip in 2011, Ron and the Warp Factor III have been keeping a low-key precense. However, the 1981 Camaro body has been replaced with a 2010 Camaro body-in-white, giving this electric dragster a more modern feel.
While Ron and the Warp Factor team have gotten far on their own, the next step is to produce a video series to promote electric drag racing and, in particular, this electric Camaro. Having met Ron in person, I can honestly say that he is 100% devoted to the idea of pure electric vehicles, and especially EV drag racing. But to fund this video series, Ron is going to need $5,000 sent to his Kickstarter fund.
Being that we love ourselves some green, clean, and mean race cars, I figured we’d put this Kickstarter out there to our readers, and ask them to pitch in and spread the word about this cool cause.
