The Westport Electric Car Club announces its second annual Electric Car Rally, a 40-mile event on Sunday, May 4. This event is open to the public. The Rally begins and ends at the Westport Saugatuck Metro-North train depot.
Registration will occur in front of the Steam Coffee Bar on the New Haven bound side, next to the 4 EV charging stations. There will be a mid-rally stopping point at the Wilton GoGreen Festival, and a free public event at the finish in Westport.
Rally registration begins at 9:00am and the rally will start at 10:00am. The public event will begin at 1:00pm when the cars are expected to finish. The public will have an opportunity to speak with EV owners, learn about EV technology, and visit sponsor tents, and enjoy snacks and drinks.
Entrants must be “plug-in” vehicles, either partially (plug-in hybrid) or fully electric. It is not necessary to be a member of the club or to live in Westport to participate. Any and all EV drivers are welcome! Eligibility for entry this year has been expanded to include plug-in motorcycles and scooters. Some of the newer models are expected to enter.
