Event Report

THis was a great event as The FVEAA rally and ride-n-drive event was held at the city-owned car test track in Naperville IL, about 30 miles west of Chicago. This is the only city-owned test track in the nation where car dealers take prospective buyers to test vehicles on a closed circuit track complete with wet brake skid test area, acceleration lane, rocky hill climb, as well as various smooth and rough terrains to provide drivers and passengers a feel for vehicle performance. The day was a complete success with roughly 70 test drives of electric vehicles, and s display of 26 electric cars and trucks
