PRESENTED BY MOUNTAIN PASS PERFORMANCE
An accessible driving series for those looking to compete in a road-course environment with EVs. Competing with similar cars means it’s all down to the driver and car setup.
EVs are reliable, fun to drive, cheap to run, 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 wheel-to-wheel racing, and a lower barrier to entry as road-going cars can be used. The perfect combination of daily driver and track car!
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.
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.
Limited car configuration will ensure that all cars are similar, maximizing the fun for everyone involved and ensuring no one is getting an obtusely unfair advantage.
For the first season, road cars are permitted so the initial investment is quite reasonable!
With similar cars, it all comes down to the driver. Some of the most exciting competition has come from series’ with equal cars so we’re very excited to see the close battles to come!
