Eurosport to electrify audiences with behind-the-scenes 2021 film

Ahead of its evolution into the FIA ETCR – eTouring Car World Cup, the drama, innovation and emotions of PURE ETCR, the world’s first all-electric, multi-brand touring car series, will be revealed in a special documentary to be broadcast on Eurosport tonight (Tuesday, December 21).

Screened at 20h00 CET on Eurosport 2 (please check local listings for time and channel in your region), the behind-the-scenes film features the key players in the series that has showcased the most powerful touring cars ever built in 2021.

Hear from the stars of the series, like title winner Mattias Ekström, Hyundai Motorsport N’s Augusto Farfus and Romeo Ferraris-M1RA Team Principal Michela Cerruti to reflect on the immense challenge of entering a new era of touring-car racing.

Find out about the struggles, the near-misses, the conflicts and, ultimately, the triumphs as every single one of the full-time drivers became a winner in the innovative Battle format, and every entered manufacturer scored an overall victory.

Watch as CUPRA by Zengo Motorsport’s Mikel Azcona makes history by taking out the opening round, and as team-mate Ekström surges ahead after victory in Spain.

See the unbridled emotion pour out of the Romeo Ferraris-M1RA team as Philipp Eng and Luca Filippi record a one-two finish in Copenhagen and re-live the tension at Pau-Arnos as the first-corner collision between Eng and Ekström threatens to let Jean-Karl Vernay snatch the title for Hyundai Motorsport N at the last moment.

A thrilling season, superbly narrated by the key players. Don’t miss it.

Here’s a little taster…
