I've had a reply from Chris,who organised the AER event;

Hi Karl,

Many thanks for your kind words and of course I’ll pass your thanks on to the other members of the team.  We had a fantastic day and I’m pleased all from team C5alive enjoyed it.

We hope to expand the event for next year and build upon this great initiative, possibly making it a standalone event.  We’ll see you and hopefully more C5’s next year!

Many thanks,
Chris


So it looks like we will be making a return to Santa Pod next year, which gives us time to get something special sorted  8)

Latest update from A.E.R. ;

To all,

The third running of Alternative Energy Racing on Friday proved to be a great success, not only was the sun shining beautifully all day but we also had our biggest entry yet.  With 29 entries registered, and more turning up on the day, it was fantastic to see such a range of diverse machinery.

I must say a huge thank you to all the entries, obviously the event wouldn’t go ahead without you; and the efforts you have made to develop your vehicles and bring them to Santa Pod is what makes it all happen. 

If you were unable to stay to the end the eventual winners of each class were:

Best Zero Emissions:  Sam Young, Blackcurrent Electric Beetle, Best Time: 11.49 seconds at 112.49 mph
Best Alternative Fuel:  Andy Gilbert, 1987 Suzuki Turbo Slingshot on E85 ethanol, Best Time: 9.318 seconds at 155 mph

A full report will be posted on the AE Racing website later today, including a full listing of all the results.

For 2011 we will be aiming to expand and improve AE Racing and your support would again be most appreciated.  If you have any ideas of ways to enhance the event please free feel to email me.  In the meantime Santa Pod hold many other events throughout the year so please visit the main website www.santapod.com if you wish to join us again before next year.

Kind regards,
Rick Cuthbert & Chris Dredge

Just hand it over to electricDave  ;D I'm sure it is possible, just that it wouldn't come back road legal or anywhere close to original  :D

I'm hoping that this Santa Pod topic will encourage a few more c5 based entries to the 2011 AER event.
