A brand new global industry is currently being born. It will touch millions of people, generate multi-million pound revenues, and will revolutionise the world of transport.
Electric and hybrid motorsport is no longer based in theory, it is rapidly becoming a reality thanks to increasing support from the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and a growing number of car manufacturers. There are already three electric race series that take place on some of the world’s most famous race tracks, and manufacturers such as Westfield and KTM are now releasing dedicated electric race cars and bikes.
Moreover, all developments in consumer vehicles are driven by advances in motorsport. Without racing we wouldn’t have ABS, fuel injection or traction control, features that we take for granted in our everyday runabouts. This R&D cycle applies equally to electric racing. As consumer take-up of EVs continues, so will the investment from manufacturers in electronic technology. These advances will be tested on the track just as they currently do for their petrol powered cars.
As consumer and industry interest continues to grow in electric motorsport, so has the need for a dedicated news resource that covers this exciting new scene.
Emotorsportnews is the only dedicated online resource for the electric motorsport industry. It offers enthusiasts and race teams a comprehensive view of the people, technology and governing bodies involved in electric track and rally car racing.
We aim to demystify and promote this fledgling area of motorsport, and in future will provide DIY motorsport enthusiasts with forums and resources to support their development of home-built electric racers.
Emotorsportnews will also keep the existing motorsport community up to date with job opportunities, legislative changes and technology developments.
Won’t the established motorsport publications pick this up?
Fossil fuel and electric powered motorsport are like chalk and cheese. Traditional motorsport has always relied on advances in mechanical engineering, whereas electric motorsport will focus on pioneering developments in electrical engineering – these are two disciplines and industries that require completely different approaches, skills and technologies. Electric race series will be completely separate from existing formulae, bringing with it a completely new industry.
