The Electric GT Championship is a zero-emission international auto racing championship. The inaugural season is planned to start in August 2017 and all teams will use a modified version of the Tesla Model S P100D.
In contrast to Formula E, the Electric GT uses classic racetracks and uses the existing infrastructure.
Each race weekend will consist of a 20-minute practice session, a 30-minute qualifying session and two races, a day and a dusk race, lasting each 60 km.
For the Inaugural season of the championship all teams are supplied identical versions of a modified Tesla Model S by sole supplier Tesla. The championship is however open to other manufactures of electric vehicles and those could be introduced in the coming seasons.
The base model for the championship car was the Tesla Model S P85, and updated to P100D for tests on the Spanish Circuit Calafat in December 2016. The modifications include improved braking, aerodynamics to increase high speed grip, strengthen of the suspension, braking and cooling, steering wheel and a reduction of the overall weight.
In January 2017, the race-prepped Tesla was tested and filmed on the Circuit Pau-Arnos in rural southwestern France.
Tyre manufacturer Pirelli will be the official supplier of tires.
MAGNUM CAP will be the official provider of charging systems. There will be 20 CHAdeMO-standard fast charger DC units, which will provide around 55 kW/h of power to each EGT race-prepared Tesla Model S P100D for season one.
