MAGNUM CAP currently has installed equipment in 17 countries and the partnership with EGT further enhances both as global icons for sustainability. MAGNUM CAP CEO José Henriques said: “This partnership is very important to MAGNUM CAP as it is totally aligned with the company’s vision; to make the world a better place by having clean, efficient energy, which is renewable. The Electric GT Championship will accelerate the world’s transition to sustainability, in particular the adoption of renewable energy in transportation. As an EGT partner, MAGNUM CAP will prove their state of the art, fast-charging technologies at the highest level”.
Electric GT Championship CEO Mark Gemmell added: “I’m very pleased to have MAGNUM CAP on board with us for season one. They have a lot of innovative ideas and experience, which I’m really looking forward to ahead of our inaugural campaign.
“Over the coming days we will also be announcing our electricity supplier. Everything’s beginning to fit in place, and now I’m just excited to get going later this year!”
