WELCOME TO A NEW ERA OF ELECTRIC TOURING CARS RACING

The FIA ETCR - eTouring Car World Cup represents a huge step forwards for electric touring car racing.

“At Discovery Sports Events, we knew when we launched PURE ETCR that now was the big opportunity to not only provide automotive manufacturers with a global showcase for their electric cars, but also to introduce all the positive aspects of electric mobility, incredible power, efficiency and sustainability into the homes of a worldwide audience. Now, with the support of the FIA, we take the next step.”

“FIA ETCR gives electric mobility an even greater representation and within a sporting framework that’s recognisable across the world. With visits to Pau and Istanbul to begin the season, we can not only highlight the mindblowing performance of electric cars to fans at one of the world’s most iconic street circuits, but also introduce a vast new audience to the concept in a city that has never held racing in its urban zone before.”

“We’ll mix this with circuits like Zolder and Hungaroring, which have the cut-and-thrust of door-to-door touring car racing running right through their histories and introduce a few tweaks to the sporting format aimed at creating even more on-track action and at appealing to a younger audience.”
