Earlier this year, Electric GT CEO Mark Gemmel tentatively announced some dates and circuits for the launch of his all-Tesla racing championship with a start at Silverstone in August.

We will finally have to wait a little longer to see their stripped-down racetrack-ready Tesla Model S P100D accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.0 seconds since the launch of the championship has slipped to November 25 at the Paul Ricard circuit in France. expand full story

Electric GT, the all-electric and all-Tesla racing championship, has promised to deliver a stripped-down racetrack-ready Tesla Model S P100D  that can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.0 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 2.1 seconds). The weight reduction is critical to this accomplishment and they have now revealed how they did it.

While the bulk of the weight reduction, which they now claim to be 1,100 lbs, came from stripping the interior, the championship partnered with natural fiber composite manufacturer Bcomp to further reduce the weight with biocomposite panels. expand full story

The idea of the Electric GT championship got a lot more exciting since they finally decided to let go of the Tesla Model S P85+ and instead use the new Tesla Model S P100D with ‘Ludicrous+’.
