Another incredible electric lap record added on the list for student team InMotion! This time, they set the record at TT Circuit Assen on July 21 st during the ‘Experience Electric Day’. With an astonishing time of 1:43:059, it will be tough for other electric cars to beat. Again, their speed demon, the InMotion IM/e has proven itself to be the fastest!

It was a spectacular day with Jeroen Mul as the driver. Besides the record lap, the IM/e was demonstrated to the public once more. All-in-all, it was a successful day for the visitors, the partners of the team, and also the team itself. What will happen next?

InMotion is a team, solely consisting of students who are working towards one goal: Improving electric mobility. They are going to show this by competing in the 24 hours of Le Mans fully electric. Thus, InMotion shows that electric driving is not only fast, but also reliable for longer distances.

The class they are aiming for in the 24 hours of Le Mans, is the Garage 56. This class allows one car per year to participate, this car has no technical restrictions. Therefore, it is perfect for ambitious students to let innovations become reality. InMotion will be the first to build an electric endurance racer for the 24 hours of Le Mans. Since this is quite a challenge with no prior examples, they choose to reach this goal with steps. That’s why the IM/e was built, an electric formula race car. This car is now the fastest electric car on three circuits: Circuit Zandvoort, Circuit Zolder, and now also TT Circuit Assen!

With the experience, partners, and knowledge they gained, InMotion is looking positively to their future. The next milestone for InMotion on their Road to Le Mans will be revealed in September. What this is going to be, remains a secret for now. However, on their social media they are giving away some sneak previews and it is promising!
