Join Jonny Smith and watch the full onboard footage as he shadows the VW Motorsport team at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where the electric ID.R race car hopes to become the fastest four-wheeler to ever compete at the Hillclimb.
Fully Charged interviews the team battery engineers for the low-down on high voltage spec, and other adjustments made in order to beat the 20-year record held by a Formula One car on the 1.16 mile Goodwood House Hillclimb.
Whilst at Goodwood Jonny also visited the Honda E EV, the VW ID3, VW ID Buzz, VW ID Vizzion and enjoyed the contrast between turbocharged piston engines, V6s, V8s, V10s, V12s, Moto GP bikes, NASCARs and all manner of other unsilenced engines against the whoosh/whistle/hiss of EVs.

Mark and Jonny were paid by VW to document the I.D. R's record attempt at Goodwood for VW motorsport.
They have created a separate video for VW about the event.
While at Goodwood Jonny and Mark had a brief look into some of the other exciting vehicles on show and have included them in this Fully Charged re-edit.
All filming and editing costs were covered by VW, and therefore no Patreon money has gone into the production of this video.
