Electric Production Car Series approved by FIA

6 February 2018

Electric GT Holdings has announced that the Electric Production Car Series  has been officially sanctioned by motorsport’s world governing body, the FIA.

The news of the series’ approval follows last week’s confirmation that the EPCS race-prepared Tesla Model S P100D passed its official FIA crash test.

Electric GT Holdings has also published details of EPCS sporting regulations, which include a three-heat (585 kW) qualifying format. Rounds in the series will include a day race (60 km) and a dusk race (60 km). EPCS race power will be set to a maximum of 585 kW.

A “Drift Off” competition will also take place at suitable circuits, where fans will see the top two finishing drivers plus two fan-voted drivers go head-to-head to complete a series of drifting challenges to secure three further championship points.

The Electric Production Car Series is the first all-electric, zero-emissions motorsport category from Electric GT Holdings. Up to 20 drivers will race the fully race-prepared Tesla Model S P100D in the Electric Production Car Series, running on bespoke Pirelli tyres and equipped with the latest OMP safety equipment, Alcon brakes, R53 suspension and composite bodywork from BComp.

“This is such an exciting day for us as we confirm that the Electric Production Car Series has been officially sanctioned by the FIA. We respect the FIA and we are honoured to have their support ahead of our inaugural season,” enthused Electric GT Holdings ceo Mark Gemmell.

“We are also pleased to officially publish the sporting regulations for the Electric Production Car Series. We have put a lot of time into refining the regulations to allow for competitive and thrilling racing.  With a three-heat qualifying system and two EPCS races, plus our eKarting and eSports races, fans will have a lot of racing action to get excited about.”
