VW ID.R at Goodwood

VW’s electric car takes on a 20 year record, with Jonny.

Join Jonny Smith and watch the full onboard footage as he shadows the VW Motorsport team at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where the electric ID.R race car hopes to become the fastest four-wheeler to ever compete at the Hillclimb.

Fully Charged interviews the team battery engineers for the low-down on high voltage spec, and other adjustments made in order to beat the 20-year record held by a Formula One car on the 1.16 mile Goodwood House Hillclimb.

Whilst at Goodwood Jonny also visited the Honda E EV, the VW ID3, VW ID Buzz, VW ID Vizzion and enjoyed the contrast between turbocharged piston engines, V6s, V8s, V10s, V12s, Moto GP bikes, NASCARs and all manner of other unsilenced engines against the whoosh/whistle/hiss of EVs.
