On Vroom in June the test of the electric Rotax

- News and Previews
We were able to test directly, in Wackersdorf, the electric kart that is currently on the crest of the wave of interest also because it animates the DEKM: the Rotax Project E20. On this month's Vroom we explain how it runs and how to use it (M. Voltini / © photo D. Paolicelli)

In a world of car racing that is giving more and more space to electric propulsion, karting is no exception: the DEKM (the German championship for electric karts) has been running for 4 years now, and this season brings on track the latest evolution of the Rotax Project E20, the kart produced by the Austrian company with 33 hp electric motor and 190 Nm of torque. A kart that is garnering great interest both in performance and in how it prepares for the "zero impact" racing of the future.

We had the opportunity to directly test this vehicle on the track, in Wackersdorf, and so on Vroom in June we explain how to manage and drive this Project E20 which has reserved many pleasant surprises: the almost total absence of maintenance (it's not even necessary to replace the sprocket) or the exceptional drive thrust out of the bends. Little bad only for the rather high weight, but for the rest let's forget many worries that we think are connected to electric traction, but also those we are used to with traditional thermal karts.
