The discontinuation of Indy in 2004 has left Vancouver motorsport fans in wanting for over a decade. With the introduction of the G-zero Championship Racing Series, the natural progression of motorsport goes green in Vancouver in 2016.
Green technology is already shaping the world of professional motorsport. In 2015, a hybrid electric took the top spot at the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the 5th year in a row and as hybrid electric vehicles continue to assert their dominance in conventional motorsport, the only question to ask is: When will clean energy replace the fossil fuel consumption and noise pollution that has always be a part of traditional racing?
Meet G-Zero. The greenest motorsport series in North America comes to Vancouver in 2016 and aims to be a catalyst for change in the world of motorsport and green technology.
Powered by fully electric battery engines, these high performance racing karts rival conventional kart race speeds at up to 110km/hour. Disk brakes, adjustable frames and liquid cooled motor systems are just some of the advanced features sported on these zero-emission vehicles. Bridging the gap between green technology and racing performance, G-zero limits the impact on the environment, without sacrificing all the adrenaline and thrills of high performance motorsport.
The series is planned to launch in the summer of 2016 and envisions a future that not only makes driving safer for drivers and cleaner for the environment, but showcases zero- emission automobiles as the way of the future, for consumers and racers alike.
With races planned for Whistler, Richmond, and Metro Vancouver (including Gastown and Chinatown), the action will be right in your backyard this coming summer. Stay tuned.
