The ERA Championship has entered into a partnership with Circuit Zolder, with the Belgian racetrack set to host testing and two race weekends for the entry-level electric single-seater race series.

ERA Championship was announced earlier this year and is set to begin in summer 2020 with races in Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK.

Testing and development of the series’ Mitsu-Bachi F110e car (pictured below) will take place at Zolder between 2019-2022, while the track will feature twice on the championship’s inaugural schedule.

The calendar will be released in the coming weeks, although the pre-season test day has also been confirmed at Zolder.

ERA Championship’s Mitsu-Bachi car is based on the Dome F110 Formula 4 chassis and will form the basis of both classes: Innovation and Sports.

The Innovation class allows teams to implement their own battery and powertrain into the F110e rolling chassis, while Sports class entries will race the standard car.

“We are delighted to call Circuit Zolder our home circuit,” said ERA Championship’s sporting and communications director Beth Lily Georgiou.

“With its rich heritage, ideal track layout for our vehicles, and strong focus on renewable energy, it is a perfect location for us.

“We will even be able to charge our cars between testing sessions with power generated from solar trackers. Together we can ensure Circuit Zolder is fully prepared for electric motorsports in the most sustainable way.”
