Top EV Racing
One of the many perks of this job is meeting highly-ambitious makers. The fellow on my right, Top EV Racing founder Michael Fragomeni, certainly doesn’t lack ambition. His moonshot is “solar super-charged” electric-powered dragsters going at world record speeds. The kicker? They will not just beat nitro-burning Top Fuel vehicles, but approach 612 kilometres per hour, or half the speed of sound. The Apollo program brought us spinoffs including better water filters, fire-resistant materials, and home insulation. Who knows what Top EV and its innovations arm HyperPower Technologies will deliver? We’re all pretty keen to find out. Good on you, Michael.
