EVCUP 'iRACER' to be unveiled at the EcoVelocity event in London
23 August 2011
The team behind the EVCUP, the world’s first circuit racing series exclusively featuring zero-emission electric vehicles, has announced it will be unveiling the iRACER, at next month’s EcoVelocity low-carbon motor festival at London’s Battersea Power Station. The race series organisers will reveal the definitive look and specifications of the iRACER, a track focused electric vehicle.
Designed and engineered from the ground up as a pure racing car, iRACER will compete in the ‘Sports EV’ classification of the series that gets underway in November in California.
The iRACER adds to a stellar collection of the world’s most head-turning, eco-friendly vehicles, which will be on display at the show’s green supercar paddock.
EcoVelocity Event Director, Giles Brown, said EVCUP had already created an enormous stir in the world of motoring since its launch. "To have EVCUP on board is extremely positive, and highlights the fact that greener motoring is now very much on the motor racing agenda”
EVCUP managing director Sylvain Filippi added: “We are very excited at the prospect of unveiling the iRACER and we are delighted to be taking part in EcoVelocity, an event that helps to highlight the importance of driving cleaner, greener cars in our urban environments.”
The EVCUP will kick-off in the United States in November, with two race events in California, the first at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on the 26th November and the second at Auto Club Speedway on the 17th December before a full series launch in 2012.
EcoVelocity will run from September 8-11 at Battersea Power Station and will feature electric, hybrid and low CO2-emitting cars, as well as providing test drives on a specially-constructed circuit in the shadow of the famous power station.
