EVR Safe: Electric Vehicle
Racing Safety Conference
OCTOBER 18, 2023
CHARLOTTE MOTOR SPEEDWAY
Since the late 1800s, where there have been cars, there have been people wanting to race cars. More than a century later, electric vehicles are becoming increasingly commonplace on our streets. Naturally, electric vehicle racing is following close behind. Many advancements in motorsports safety have come about from lessons learned over the years. And most recently, we have seen the safety issues associated with electric vehicles on the streets. Today the motorsports industry is in a perfect position to prepare for those issues on track!
Racing Goes Safer is proud to have partnered with the North Carolina Battery Complexity, Autonomous Vehicle and Electrification Research Center (BATT CAVE) at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to bring you the next installation of our Electric Vehicle Safety Series! Read the full seminar recap. If you were able to attend please leave us a review!
In an effort to bring more awareness to EV Racing safety issues, we are proud to partner with Eric Huhn to help provide answers to your EV questions. Eric is UNC Charlotte’s facility and laboratory Safety Director, and a trackside firefighter at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Eric is well versed in EV Racing safety issues, and the fires that often accompany them.
Do you have an EV Racing safety question? Eric will help you find the answer!
