Since the late 1800s, where there have been cars, there have been people wanting to race cars. More than a century later, electric vehicles are becoming increasingly commonplace on our streets. Naturally, electric vehicle racing is following close behind. Many advancements in motorsports safety have come about from lessons learned over the years. And most recently, we have seen the safety issues associated with electric vehicles on the streets. Today the motorsports industry is in a perfect position to prepare for those issues on track!
