The World's Longest Electric Vehicle Rally

The E-Mazing Race

The Amazing Race, the popular reality television show, is now in its twenty-third season. Spin-offs of this fast paced competition have become popular for companies looking to educate and affect human behaviour through gamification. In September 2012, to lure more electric vehicle drivers to the market, Sun Country Highway (SCH), an electric vehicle infrastructure solutions provider, introduced the E-Mazing Race (EMR), an electric vehicle rally building on the adventurist spirit of early adopting electric vehicle owners.

Stop By - Say Hi - Use Our Charger

A great way to meet other EV drivers

We recommend having a charger installed right at home if you can. We have a Sun Country charger on the outside of the garage. It's registered on the Sun Country website and also on PlugShare. Drivers in the area who need a charge for a bit more range can find us and give us a call to stop by. We've met some interesting people this way and charged a few different cars including this Tesla. It gives us an opportunity to see how other owners adapt to the EV lifestyle and check out other cars close up.
