Electric Production Car Series Gets Green Light From FIA

The FIA will sanction the Electric Production Car Series (EPCS) as announced by Electric GT Holdings Inc.

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

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

Electric GT Holdings Inc. has also published the EPCS sporting regulations, which include a three-heat (585kW) qualifying format. Rounds will consist of a day race (60km) and a dusk race (60km). EPCS race power will be set to a maximum of 585kW (778hp).

An innovative “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.

“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 honored to have their support ahead of our inaugural season,” Electric GT Holdings Inc. CEO Mark Gemmell said.
