Electric Vehicle Safety Seminar at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach with Eric Huhn
Saturday, April 15th, 2023
Long Beach Convention Center, Rooms 203 A,B&C
This year at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, we will address a topic of growing importance, Electric Vehicle Racing Safety, at our annual Stand 21, Racing Goes Safer seminar on Saturday, April 15th , 2023.
This topic should be of interest to those at the track who inspect race vehicles and provide safety response during competition, as well as drivers and crew with these vehicles. With more EVs and electric hybrids showing up at track days and competition events, now is the time to learn more about the special precautions that need to be taken as routine, or when something goes wrong with this new technology.
We have engaged Eric Huhn of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to speak at our Long Beach safety seminar. Eric will be covering the basics of working around high voltage and amperage hardware, procedures to follow, precautions around production EVs like Teslas, preventing battery fires, and in the worst case, addressing runaway battery fires. He will cover what we know at this point in this emerging area, and what has been learned by the FIA in Formula E.
Special Guest: Jacky Ickx – Legendary six-time Le Mans victor, Can-Am champion, the runner-up in the 1969 and 1970 Formula 1 World Championships for Brabham and Ferrari, twice World Endurance champion and Paris-Dakar winner will tell stories of daring and dangers in those times.
