Integral Powertrain wins prestigious Award at the WMS 2018

5 December 2018
Integral Powertrain has won the Race Powertrain of the Year Award at this year’s World Motorsport Symposium Awards 2018.

The Awards, which took place in London, saw Integral pick up the prestigious Race Powertrain of the Year Award for its 1.D Pikes Peak all-electric powertrain.

Volkswagen Motorsport turned to Integral Powertrain for its record-breaking I.D. R Pikes Peak all -electric powertrain. Integral provided a pair of surface permanent magnet motors, which allowed the car to make the 12.42 miles journey to the finish line of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, perched some 4,720ft higher up than the start line at a dizzying 14,110ft.

RACE TECH Editor-in-chief and Judge, William Kimberley said: “Arnaud Martin is becoming a serial winner with us, picking up his third award, this time for the incredible work he and his team at Integral Powertrain did on the electric motors that powered the Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak car to the fastest time ever achieved by any vehicle at Pikes Peak this year.

“They were shortlisted against Thomas Kraemer for the jewel of an engine in the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo, and Norio Aoki for the 1.6-litre, inline 4-cylinder, direct injection engine that won the bragging rights as the strongest in the fierce contest for World Rally Championship winning Toyota the Manufacturers’ Championship this year.”
