The Electric GT Championship, the world’s first 100 percent zero-emission GT series, has announced that its headquarters will be built at the Circuit Pau-Arnos, France.
A statement of sustainability, the new building will act as the principal hub for all test and development programmes both on and off the track, before the EGT Championship gets underway at the Circuit Paul Ricard in November.
The agreement was confirmed during today’s announcement for the new ‘Pau ECircuit’ project, as the region looks to become an incubator for technology and clean energy.
The event also saw French legend and Formula 1 Grand Prix winner Jean-Pierre Jabouille, Le Mans winner Stéphane Ortelli and EGT Drivers’ Club member Olivier Lombard drive the raceprepared Tesla Model S around the 3 km circuit.
Selected journalists were also given the opportunity to experience the EGT V1.4 Tesla Model S P85, with the latest version, based on the P100D, currently under development.
To celebrate this important step forward, EGT have launched their exclusive Founders’ Club, where Tesla and Electric Vehicle fans can join the team that makes this championship a reality.
