--- Bandimere - the best dragstrip in the world for EVs! ---

Blog - in EnglishPosted by Eva Håkansson 02 Aug, 2012 02:48:23
One of the very best things with living in Denver is that our home track is Bandimere Speedway! The track is at over 1 mile elevation and has the documented stickiest track surface in the world! The first 200 ft of the track is temperature controlled with circulating water under the surface to keep it perfectly sticky. Since electric vehicles don't breath, they are faster here than anywhere else in the world.

The track owners - the Bandimere family - are also absolutely wonderful. They let us test run KillaJoule on the 1/4 mile, despite a vehicle like that has no business on the dragstrip, and has been great supporters of the KillaCycle over the past 10 years.

Since Bandimere are being so great to us, I asked the track owner and CEO John "Sporty" Bandimere III for some stickers to put on KillaJoule. I did not only get stickers in the mail, but also a personal, hand-written "Good luck!" note. Sporty is such a wonderful guy. He doesn't spend his days in a plush corner office overlooking the track. Every time we are there, even if it is just the Wednesday night test and tune, he is down working at the track, inspecting vehicles and selling t-shirts. We couldn't ask for a better home track! (Well, it would be great if Loring was around the corner too, but I guess we can't get everything... ;-)
