On Monday the 7th June, the team met up to survey the course, aiming to attempt to break the record on the 9th June. This proved to be a bitterly disappointing exercise where unusual weather had adversely affected the course.

E=motion requires a course some 11kms in length, whereas a survey revealed just over 6.5kms of good salt flat, the rest ridged and unstable. Chott el Jerid translates into 'Beach of Oasis'. The flats have a clay base over which lies a thin crust of salt just a few centimeters thick. This salt crust is composed of crystals of gypsum and halite. In this case the groundwater had been high allowing the crystals to grow upwards unevenly to form ridges similar to small waves, much like the sand at Pendine during adverse winds. Worse still, the salt crust had separated in places from the clay subsurface blistering the smooth flats with loose material. This combination is unsuitable for ABB e=motion to run.
ABB e=motion is powered by ABB motors and drives. The 32 foot (10m) long mustard yellow racing car is designed to hit speeds of more than 300 mph (483kph).
The car, whose main sponsor is the global electrical engineering
company ABB, made the June 2004 record attempt at a special track provided by
the Tunisian authorities at the Chott-el-Jerid salt flats near the
southern town of Tozeur. ABB is billed as the Platinum Sponsor of the ABB
E=motion at Bruntingthorpe
"In fact, the only reason we had to stop the car was because we ran out of road!" says Newby. "With this sort of performance, we’re convinced that our car will easily beat the existing world electric land speed record."
The following is a brief chronology of major events surrounding this world record attempt:-
