PREPARED FOR EVERY POSSIBILITY
The success of GB EV Rally will be largely down to the kind help and assistance of our Event Partners, both from an organisational point of view, as well as an engagement one too.
We are fortunate to have secured the support of the some of the largest names in their fields, to help us here.
Planning & Execution
Thanks to the expertise of bp pulse, Paua, Char.gy, Gridserve and SWARCO, our charging partners, we have plotted a route that enables us to take in the iconic landmarks we want, coupled with charge points that will feature as Official Checkpoints.
Courtesy of Webfleet Solutions, innovative tracking technology will be fitted to the participating vehicles, so we can broadcast LIVE progress of the GB EV Rally, online, as it progresses. Driver performance will also be highlighted, daily, with daily tips given by Driver Training Partner, Drivetech.
Thanks, once again, to AA, we will be able to cope with any issues that might occur. If it’s a technical fault on the vehicle, or simply a ‘flatty’, we have it covered. Armed with their portable on-board charger, and their award-winning ‘Free-Wheeling Hub’, the drivers are in safe hands.
Event Logistics & Support
Ensuring that the Checkpoints are fully functional and branded, our Logistics Crew will get around ahead and behind the Rally, thanks to the use of innovative eDeliver 9 electric vans, kindly supplied by Maxus UK.
LETS MAKE THIS EVENTFUL
While we expect to make the news, on TV AND Radio, our reach on social media platforms will drive the interest in this, and our PARTNERS are key to us achieving this, as well as the smooth running of the event too. Here is a summary of where you can see us and the collective, projected reach…
DRIVER LEAGUE TABLE
We are delighted to have secured the involvement of Drivetech as the Official Driver Training Partner and Webfleet Solutions as the Technology Partner for the event.
Over the 5 days, Drivetech's ‘EV KEITH’ will once again set the standard for everyone else to beat, or match. With decades of experience under his race-suit belt, and using his innovative VW ID.3, he will demonstrate how ‘driver style’ affects the performance of an EV, in the same way it does on an ICE vehicle.
Using the Webfleet Solutions technology fitted to the vehicles, we will measure harsh acceleration, braking, cornering, and coupled with temperature, etc. will be able to demonstrate the energy use (Miles/kWh) of each vehicle.
Team Drivetech will also be offering daily advice to EV Rally participants and the watching fleet professionals, on how to get the best out of their electric vehicle.
Every night, we will publish the results of the day’s drive and see how it affects the TEAM LEAGUE TABLE… It’s going to get competitive
