Created by WSC Group, the technical concept used in PURE ETCR promises to provide thrilling wheel-to-wheel action on-track with some of the world’s best drivers going head-to-head in action-packed battles. A Magelec Propulsion powertrain with Williams Advanced Engineering battery unit will push 500kw through the rear wheels; the equivalent of a staggering 680bhp. A push-to-pass facility will help overtaking while an additional fightback mode will produce an opportunity to regain lost ground. With 0-100kph achieved in just 3.2 seconds, PURE ETCR vehicles will be the fastest-accelerating Touring Cars ever seen, and will be re-energised using EnelX chargers.
PURE ETCR aims to change attitudes towards electric vehicles and promote electric mobility as a matter of social responsibility. With this in mind, a series of key commitments have been made to achieve greater sustainability in motorsport.
Hydrogen-powered generators will be used in the paddock because they are significantly less-impactful than traditional internal combustion-powered units.
We acknowledge that the sourcing of power is a key factor of the environmental footprint of electric vehicles so less-impactful sourcing will always be favoured. As promoter, Eurosport Events commits to changing the way events are organised to a less-impactful manner.
