Slot.it Lola B12/69 EV - Goodwood 2013
In June 2013 Lord Paul Dryson drove his Lola B12/69 racing EV to break the 200 Mph speed barrier, on the Elvington airport tarmac, topping the previous land speed record for sub-1000 kg Electric Vehicles, which had been standing for forty years, by about 30 Mph, reaching 204.2 Mph (328.6 km/h). Such EV model also broke other FIA sanctioned land speed records, such as the quarter mile speed, and later broke the 333 km/h limit on the straight km as well.
The prototype stemmed from a Le Mans B10 Lola, whose drive train, electrical and electronics were totally replaced, and whose positioning and cooling was a major technical challenge. Lord Dryson is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and member of Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council.
