MODEL3 CHALLENGE

PRESENTED BY MOUNTAIN PASS PERFORMANCE

 

About

The Series

An accessible series for those looking to grow into wheel-to-wheel racing with EVs. Racing with equal cars means it’s all down to the driver and car setup.

EVs are reliable, fun to drive and incredibly evenly matched. The perfect base for some classic touring car fun.

A unique format allows for a close battling experience without the risk of full wheel-to-wheel racing, and a lower barrier to entry as road-going cars can be used.

 

Growing tired of lapping days? Not enough power to be competitive in time attack? Looking for the next step? Maybe the Model 3 Challenge is just what you’re looking for.

ABOUT

The Cars

 

 Using power limited Model 3’s, the cars are able to compete in short sprints without the worry of power reduction.

Lower power also means closer racing as the cars are easier to master. It’s all down who makes the fewest mistakes.

For the first season, road cars are permitted so the initial investment is quite small!
