PURE ETCR is the world’s first ever all-electric, multi-brand touring car championship — an exciting new competition that pits the world’s best drivers at the wheel of the most powerful and fastest-accelerating touring cars against each other in a test of speed, skill, and cutting-edge technologies.

 

PURE ETCR is promoted by Eurosport Events, which signed on to the United Nations Sports for Climate Action Framework in what is another significant step towards climate neutrality for a safer planet. After all racing is fun, but it must also be sustainable if we are to preserve our word for future generations.

ETCR racing calendar 2021

PURE ETCR has unveiled a provisional calendar for its maiden season with a five-round schedule that starts in Europe in June and ends in Asia in October.

 

Italy’s Autodromo Vallelunga Piero Taruffi racing circuit will stage the first event on June 18-20. This will be followed by a visit to Circuit Zolder, Belgium (July 2-4) and then to MotorLand Aragón, Spain (July 9-11). 

The battle continues in Denmark on August 6-11 as part of the Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix, with the Bellahøj Park hosting PURE ETCR’s first street-circuit event. The series ends with a trip to South Korea’s Inje Speedium motor racing circuit, on October 15-17.

eMotorsports and Enel X’s commitment

Electric mobility is one of the cornerstones of our mission to foster renewable energy for a sustainable world. For us, eMotorsports are the perfect showcase for the many benefits of carbon-free mobility — one of the pillars not only of the Enel X business model but also of our entire philosophy. We use the world of eMotorsports as a testing ground of our cutting-edge technologies for emissions-free racing — solutions which can then be applied to daily life so everyone can benefit from them.

 

This is why we are a leading provider of charging solutions in the world of eMotorsports: Enel X is the official charging partner for several high-profile events, including most recently the PURE ETCR Championship

 

We will provide two types of fast charging stations, which we specifically developed for ETCR racing: JuiceCompact, which is equipped with a single 60 kW connector, and JuiceCompactPlus, which has a double connector with two 60 kW outputs and is capable of delivering 120 kW when only one output is engaged.

 

Both chargers are completely movable, and can fully recharge an ETCR vehicle in less than one hour. 

Vallelunga: the Enel X e-Mobility Hub

The first development and testing center for our electric mobility technologies

 

We developed and tested our new products in partnership with ETCR at our Vallelunga e-Mobility Hub at the famous Vallelunga racing circuit: this is where our creative thinkers — designers, experts and engineers — join forces to come up with cutting-edge solutions that conjugate renewable energy with technology and safety. 

 

Our smart solutions can be adapted for everyday use on the street, paving the way for a world in which cars will be silent, comfortable, safe, fast — and non-polluting. Because the race to a sustainable future is on.
