Drag Racing Electric Cars against a World Champion Drag Racer

 

The Electric Vehicle Road Tour (EVRT) is a tour around UAE and Oman using electric cars. It just goes to show how these countries have developed with electric vehicle charging points as it is now possible to tour from Abu Dhabi, to Muscat and back to Ras Al Khaimah and to Dubai.

We joined the last two days of the tour from Fujairah to Ras Al Khaimah where we took to the tallest mountain in the UAE, Jebal Jais. The sights were epic and the cars handled it well up the mountain.

Later we had some fun at the Rak Track with some electric vehicle drag racing. Four times World Champion drag racer Doug Herbert had joined the tour and of course everyone was looking to race him. We had some fun racing Tesla’s against Ford Mustangs and Chevrolet Camaro’s (Which the Tesla won each time). The social media star Supercar Blondie joined us as well and raced some of the guys and their petrol pumped cars. The Tesla seemed a clear champion in all races.

Then I took it head to head with Doug Herbert in exactly the same cars. We both races Chevrolet Bolts and had all things the same, except the driver. Watch the video to see how I got on.
