Visitors to Autosport International will have the chance to witness the debut of the exciting new Electric GT Championship (EGT) at Europe’s premier pre-season motorsport show.

A fully electric Tesla Model S P85+ with 416 HP and 600 Nm of Torch is seen in the race version for the new Electric GT World Series during the unvieling event in Ibiza, Spain on September 27, 2016. The organisers of this zero-emission-series announced seven stops in Europe and three in North and South America for 2017 with ten teams and twenty drivers.

A number of big announcements are expected to take place at the event including news of more drivers set to compete in the series in 2017, along with several high-profile brand ambassadors.

Together with these highly anticipated announcements, EGT will also have the modified Tesla Model S P85+ race machine on display in Hall 6 on Stand 6250. Visitors are in for a further treat as this first-ever fully electric GT car will make a number of dynamic appearances within the Live Action Arena.

With eight drivers already announced, a number of the new “Electric Heroes” will be presented at Autosport International. The 2017 Electric GT Championship will consist of 20 international drivers, both male and female, racing for 10 professional teams. Each team will race in identical race-prepared Tesla Model S machines equipped with the latest OMP safety equipment and running on bespoke Pirelli tyres.

The series 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.
