Next year there will be a racing series with full electric racing cars (Formula E).
But in the first years of racing there were also full electric racing cars.
There was a electric car in Paris-Bordeux-Paris. There were two full electric cars in the entry list: Charles Jeanteaud with his Jeanteaud (don't know whether he startet) and a unnamed driver with his Bogard (did not finish).
Where there more full ectric racing cars? Where there also some in Gordon Benett Cup or even in Grand Prix Racing? When was the last electric car driven? Has someone a list of such cars and some details?
I heard that in Europe the cars with petrol were dominated in short time, in 1896 there was not full electric racing car in the race Paris-Bordeaux-Paris again. But there was a race in Long Island in 1900 which was won by Andrew L. Riker in a Riker Electric car. He needed two hours for 80 kilometres, which is 39.09 km/h.
