As we enter the ‘roaring twenties’, motorsport is bucking the trend with super silent electric series popping up in every echelon of racing.
But electric doesn’t have to mean less exciting. Pure ETCR, the latest series to be announced, is set to pit electric touring cars against one another in intense ‘battles’. And with rear-wheel-drive and up to 500kW (680PS), what the cars lack in noise they will more than make up in spectacle. The multi-manufacturer series will be launching at this year’s Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard, with entrants taking part in a special time-trial hillclimb heat.
