ELECTRIC GT TO FEATURE AT AUTOSPORT INTERNATIONAL
The Electric GT (EGT) Championship is delighted to confirm its presence at Autosport International (January 12-15, 2017), to showcase the world’s first 100% zero-emissions GT series.
Europe’s largest motorsport show, held at the NEC in Birmingham, England, features some of the most innovative technologies in the industry, making it the perfect stage for the EGT championship and the Age of Light.
The revolutionary Tesla Model S, which is being race-prepared for the inaugural EGT season in 2017, will be on show as well as in action in the Live Action Arena during the show.
With eight of the EGT Drivers’ Club already announced, a number of the new “Electric Heroes” will be presented at stand 6250, opposite the display from EGT tyre partner Pirelli.
Visitors will also receive an exclusive first glimpse of the 2017 EGT calendar, and get the inside line on star drivers and ambassador announcements plus more breaking news.
Electric GT Championship CEO, Mark Gemmell said: “Autosport International is the key off-season event for the motorsport industry, so it’s a fantastic opportunity for us to present the innovative Electric GT Championship. We believe that by being there, we will be able to push the automotive world forwards, towards a new future – the Age of Light.”
The EGT Championship will consist of 20 international drivers, both male and female, racing for 10 professional teams in identical Tesla Model S machines equipped with the latest OMP safety equipment and running on bespoke Pirelli tyres. With DHL as its logistics partner, EGT will visit seven classic European circuits in its inaugural season, including Paul Ricard, Barcelona, Assen, Estoril and the Nürburgring, before staging three non-championship races in the Americas.
