Racing day and night; The 24 Hours of Le Mans tests our limits and abilities. To make it even more ambitious: We aim for the Garage 56 class. A class in which only one car is allowed to enter, a class for pure innovation with only safety rules, a class in which only one car has been able to finish before. InMotion will push the automotive industry by participating with the first electric race car in the contest ever, the IM01: the race car of the future.
By participating in the Garage 56 class, we show the world the abilities and technologies of future engineers. Without any technical restrictions besides safety, we can exploit our creative minds. Theoretical knowledge from the university will be applied in practice, and dreams will become reality.
Our biggest milestone: the realisation of the IM/e. The IM/e is the fastest electric formula race car worldwide. After building the car for 2.5 years we were able to hit the road, and not without any results!
On June the 4th 2017, only four months after the first drive, we broke the electric lap record on Circuit Zandvoort! Beating our colleagues from Delft by a stunning 16 seconds! Beitkse Visser, our record driver, set the new record at 1:48:371.
Barely two months later, on July the 15th, we surprised the world again by breaking another electric lap record! This time, our driver Xavier Maassen set the new record at 1:42:641 on Circuit Zolder. We were no less than 19 seconds faster than the previous holder!
These two records to our name prove our abilities. We are happy with the results so far, and we plan to break more records!
A third record for InMotion!
On July the 21st 2018, one year and one board later, we got another record in our pocket! This time, we set the electric lap record at TT Circuit Assen. With an incredible time of 1:43:059, it will be tough for future electric cars to beat. For this record, we had a new driver: Jeroen Mul. To read more about it, go to our news page. Also, we have a teaser video of the record attempt to get you excited for the full video!
