Scrambls/KleenSpeed EV-X11 Sets New EV Lap Record at ReFuel 2012


Disruptive Technology Leads the Way To a Greener Future

as World's Fastest Electric Race Car Sets the Pace  

for America's Premier EV Motorsports Event  

at Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca July 1, 2012.

 

Laguna Seca, CA - July 1, 2012 - With primary sponsorship by scrambls, the KleenSpeed  Technologies EV-X11 Electric Race Car led the large field of electric vehicles participating the fourth annual ReFuel Clean Power Motorsports Event.  Competing in the Open Prototype class, the Scrambls/KleenSpeed EV-X11 shattered the lap time of 1:38.9 it set in winning last year's ReFuel event by over 6 seconds, completing a hot lap of the challenging Laguna Seca circuit in 1:32.046 to set a new record for the fourth year in a row.

 

ReFuel is the leading open competition for electric vehicles held in the United States with classes for EV prototypes, EV production vehicles, EV conversions and several classes of electric motorcycles.  ReFuel 2012 had a considerably larger roster of entrants than in 2011 including the Yokahama Blue Earth HER-02 - the EV Class champion at the 2011 Pikes Peak Hill Climb, a large contingent of TESLA Roadsters and an "unofficial" group of TESLA S Pre-Production sedans, a race-Prepped CODA sedan, numerous Nissan Leafs and several BMW Active E sedans.  The motorcycle category was led by Brammo's Empulse TTXGP bike and various ZERO models with a full field of privateer entries as well.  CODA also held a CODA Driving Experience event.

 

The Scrambls/KleenSpeed EV-X11 turned the fastest lap of all the competitors by a large margin, validating the disruptive technology of the KleenSpeed genESSsys™ Race system incorporated in the world's fastest electric track racing car.  The EV-X11 was piloted to the new lap record by Kevin Mitz of Rennworks Motorsports.

 KleenSpeed Fastest of all at ReFuel for the 4th time 
 

"I'm just delighted with our new record, which validates the progress we have made with KleenSpeed's technology in the past year. It shows how quickly we are moving into the new, smart energy future." said Timothy Collins, president of KleenSpeed Technologies. "I'd like to thank scrambls for their sponsorship which recognizes the synergy between our visions for the future, and the entire KleenSpeed team for their hard work and talent in improving the systems performance of the EV-X11 in preparation for this new record. "

 

Kevin Mitz, record-setting driver of the EV-X11 offers this commentary, "The car was fantastic and the performance of the KleenSpeed technology was very impressive. Driving electric is a new experience and the flat electric torque curve and the lack of shifting are significant advantages for me as a driver."
