Electroheads Motorsport, the pioneering all-electric kart racing series founded by Rob Smedley, the ex-Ferrari and Williams Formula One race engineer and current director of data systems for F1, have announced further details on their 2020 Thunderbolt championship.
The aim of the series is to provide an affordable and environmentally friendly way for children to take part in the world of motorsport, and more generally increase accessibility and diversity in motorsport.
The series will operate on a 'arrive and drive' basis, with two age group categories in place from six to 12 years old, with participants competing in equal E-karts provided by Electroheads. In addition to the full championship rounds, Electroheads are offering Spark Taster sessions in their E-karts at some of the venues.
- Sunday 11th October (3pm – 4.30pm) – Mansell Raceway
- Tuesday 27th October (3pm – 4.30pm) – Whilton Mill
- Sunday 13th December (3pm – 4.30pm) – Whilton Mill
Sessions are priced at £125 and are suitable for children who are new to karting or for experienced drivers who just want to try out the E- karts and see what they can do. The Spark Tasters will include a warm up, followed by 3 sessions.
