The iconic Lostallo track in Switzerland recently saw the running of a 24h race for 1/10th electric on-road cars. The rules allowed to use both electric touring and pan cars alongside with the two both making use of 17.5T motors with the faster pan car LM class utilising a 3.00 gear ratio whereas the 4WD touring cars were run using a 4.00 gear ratio. To make up for the slight weight and speed disadvantage the touring cars allowed for quicker battery changes, in under a minute, while the average LM pitstop was at 80 seconds. This made for a level playing field in the dry track conditions. Ultimately it was Team Sitterdorf with the win after 3945 laps, taking profit of fewer pit stops, a slower speed and perfect preparation with 2017 winners, Team Insurbia, coming in 2nd only 17 laps or six minutes behind.
Thanks to Andrea Brianza for the report.
