Speed Ventures celebrates 10 years of gathering EV enthusiasts in Monterey, California, to push the limits of clean power.
On July 1st, Speed Ventures will host the 10th annual REFUEL EV track event at historic—and freshly re-named—WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California. REFUEL welcomes electric cars and motorcycles to showcase clean power technology in a motorsports setting.
Speed Ventures, California’s leading recreational motorsports sanctioning body, envisioned REFUEL a decade ago as an opportunity to push the boundaries of EV performance. Those boundaries have been expanding rapidly since its inception, and the 10th annual event is sure see track records fall.
Speed Ventures will provide track time and basic performance driving instruction for drivers of electric cars and riders of electric motorcycles. The event is open to production EVs as well as to conversions and purpose-built all-electric race cars.
We expect this year to be the most competitive yet in the all-electric REFUEL Time Trial competition which includes classes for production vehicles, conversions, and prototypes.
The REFUEL Clean Power Motorsports Event will offer the following:
- Drive your EV or Electric Motorcycle on WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca at speed and receive basic performance driving instruction
- Participate in the REFUEL Time Trial to see who is the fastest EV driver at WTRLS
- Free charging stations for REFUEL track event and Time Trial participants
- A Parade Lap on the historic race course that’s open to all EVs in attendance—low speed, passengers are allowed, no helmets required. (Parade Lap is Tentatively Scheduled!)
