GP Elec Levallois - the First 100% Electric City-Course Grand Prix

GP Elec

In brief: The cirty of Levallois, France will be hosting the first annual ever city-course grand prix featuring nothing but electric cars.

The word

GP Elec

Coming in June, the Levallois GP Elec will be racing through the city of Levallois on a 3 kilometer course (1.8 miles). The course will have 8 bends, a tunnel, and an 800 meter straight run that is sure to show some burnt rubber.

The event will be unique in many ways, including the high-powered and silent race cars which will include at least one Tesla Roadster and several custom electric racers and prototypes.

This first-ever GP Elec will begin on June 4 and run through to the 6th, with several events and a fair to accompany the race itself.

Spectators and press will be able to see the cars up close, learn about electric vehicles, and other innovations in transportation. Other events will include electric go-carts, children's cars, and more.

And so ...

Very cool and well worth attending if you can get there!
