The Drayson Racing FIA World Land Speed Record

Drayson Racing has announced that it has set a new World Electric Land Speed Record of 204.185mph. Lord Paul Drayson has set the record for a sub-1000kg electric car in his converted Le Mans racer at Elvington airfield.

YASA Motors worked with Drayson racing to develop a bespoke 850bhp powertrain for the vehicle, which consists of 4 YASA-750H motors, each delivering up to 160kW. YASA have increased the power rating of the YASA-750H motor and increased the top speed of the machine to meet the performance criteria required by Drayson Racing.
