Fully-electric SuperCharge road car racing series unveiled

by | Nov 11, 2020 | Fomula E

SuperCharge is based on cars recognizable

On the outside as electric road cars the public can or will be able to buy.

Nonetheless, the SC01, the race car,0 will offer such appreciable performance and mileage.

With The Formula 1 car, it has an acceleration similar to that they will have a rocket to 0-100 km/h in a staggering 2.5 seconds to 500kW power (equivalent to 670bhp).

They revealed its plans that they want to know how much hope to have for the motorsport’s future.

With a planned 2022 start,

SuperCharge, an all-new global motorsport series based on electric crossover road cars

the inaugural series is targeting eight events taking place right across the globe,

In cities from Asia-Pacific, China, Europe, the Middle East, and the USA aiming to provide spectacular racing entertainment and ultimately promote the uptake of electric cars.

The planning and development of SuperCharge

over the past 18 months has undertaken with care to ensure it is relevant,cost-effective, and incubates technological advancements. At the same time, the new series offers clear technical and commercial benefits for car manufacturers.

The electric car battery technology innovations and the concept will target new audiences for electric vehicles

Give manufacturers the scope to develop, test,  and relevant software in the real-world.

SuperCharge Managing Director and co-founder, Rob Armstrong, says:

“With many countries and cities already announcing plans to ban internal combustion-engine cars in the coming years. We believe it is only a matter of time before there are more electric motorsport series.

Given this rapidly increasing EV momentum, we believe the timing and appealed the need for road car-based electric motorsport is becoming more and more compelling.

SuperCharge are ideal and see clear space for it as the road car-relevant motorsport series.”

The racing driver and media personality, Tanner Foust, adds:

“The SuperCharge series has an amazing allure for a race driver like me. In my career, I’ve found that for new motorsport to grow successfully.

It has to appeal to a young demographic, as well as the major car manufacturers.

The excitement of electric acceleration, high-performance, and cutting-edge technology, combined with the tempo of the race day, will tick both boxes and turn, ensure a very successful series.”

To ensure racing is tremendously competitive and entertaining, the technical regulations of the series.

It means the only ways of gaining improved on-track performance come from a combination of driver skill mechanical set-up and team development of battery technology systems

– spanning power draw-down, battery geometry, cooling, and battery management systems.

An ‘amphitheater’ concept, which can be adapted to suit a variety of urban venue settings from parks, street circuits, or existing race tracks, ensures live audiences will always be right in the heart of the action.

Extensive views of the fast-paced-action will assure through a myriad of viewing platforms.

Every SuperCharge race track will feature four unique characteristics.

Meanwhile The first is the 2.5m ramp that could project the cars up to 10 meters on every lap.

Able to accommodate two or more cars abreast, afterward it will be an integral racing element and core circuit feature, at last enabling drivers to utilize different jump entry and exit tactics.

With a purpose to “supercharge”then the race to a more sustainable future,

The series intends to create spectacular experiences in urban environments that enable the pioneers of electric mobility to inform, educate and inspire future generations.

SuperCharge aims to transform the appeal and uptake of EVs for cities actively targeting improved air qualityclimate and change mitigation through e-mobility, specifically through its ambition to use 100% renewable energy.

Centre-stage in the SuperCharge paddock concept is a charging zone that adopts regular road car connectors and roadside fast charging to inform the public about the whole EV ownership experience.

The final feature is the SuperLoop, once-per-race lap extension can deploy tactically to gain an advantage over competing drivers.

Carefully conceived SuperCharge to make a statement of these societal differences and to evaluate the needs of car companies, fans, saleable parties, and venues to make a fully sustainable and commercially viable new series.

Also SuperCharge takes motorsport into a new and hugely relevant arena and, we can’t wait to spark the series into life across the globe.

Cars will share a standardized tubular frame rolling chassis –

To contain costs – but teams can then customize the bodywork to resemble any associated manufacturers.

They also develop the battery systems

– it hopes that this can then filter back down into the OEMs’ road-car platforms.

“SuperCharge takes motorsport into a new and hugely relevant arena and supercharge developed.

we are working closely with leading manufacturers and,we can’t wait to spark the series the life across the globe.”

The key suppliers,

Meanwhile German car constructor Holzer, in turning this exciting concept into reality.

“Undoubtedly, it is an exciting time to be involved in revolutionizing the next generation of motorsport.”

SuperCharge will organize in conjunction with national governing body

Motorsport UK and the British Automobile Racing Club as it bids to gain FIA International Series status.
