Quotes

"This record was about establishing a whole new level of single-charge travel for high-speed electric vehicles, which we hope will revolutionise the electric car industry" project director and third-year engineering student Hayden Smith said
"As a racing driver you always want to be on the podium and it's not everyday you get to break a world record" he said
Alexander Kirillov, Regional Sales Director, Gazprom Neft and G-Drive Racing project leader, commented: "Thanks to the G-Drive Racing project our country has become a major player on the international motorsports arena. We are keen to engage extreme sports and speed fans in the compulsive world of major motorsports, and to that end are running this unique show for the second year. I have every confidence that viewers will appreciate the real value of this initiative and that G-Drive fuels will, once again, demonstrate their edge in performance."
