One Driver and Three Cyclists …
… make a team. The three cyclists (at least) are responsible for charging the batteries. They take turns and generate electricity from their own muscle power. This current then charges the vehicle, which the driver then uses to compete against the competition. The Electric Muscle Challenge takes place on the forecourt of the Ferry Porsche Congress Centre Zell am See and transforms this renowned venue into a motor sports centre.
This Is How The Electric Muscle Challenge Works
When the IONICA carts are handed over to the teams, they have completely empty batteries. It would be just too easy otherwise. When the start signal sounds, the driver first has to pedal hard to supply their vehicle with power so that the driver can enter the track. Any number of cyclists may be used in any order. The race works in KO mode:, team vs. team on identical but separate circuits.
