The StuntBusters show on SPEEDTV did an attempt to show which is faster - gas or electric.  The event was staged and not terribly like real race conditions.  So we shouldn't read into this anything more than an attempt to entertain and inform people.  And, for sure, it put electric vehicles in front of a bunch of gearheads in a positive light.

In terms of helping to explode the myth that electric vehicles can only be slow boring ugly golf carts, this is pretty good.  In terms of being a rigorous test in real race conditions .. it's not that .. which I wrote about here:  Which is faster, gasoline or electric, and electric race action around the world
