Trev has winged his way from Australia to Europe, and has just been successfully retrieved from customs in Zurich by our initial drivers, Nick and Jason. They’re taking Trev to a workshop in Lucerne for final preparations, ready for pre-race events on Sunday evening and for the official Zero Race start on Monday afternoon in Geneva.
The pre-race event is a race up the Grimsel Pass to the top of the Swiss Alps, and is open to any electric vehicle (including the Zero Race entrants).
The start of Zero Race will be quite spectacular – it will all take place at the UN’s Palais des Nations, overlooking Lake Geneva. The ceremony will be conducted near the rows of national flags and will involve the opening of the Pregny Gate – a very rare occurrence apparently. Expect some gorgeous photos in a few days’ time!
