NedaSay Posted July 26, 2019 Report Share Posted July 26, 2019 (edited) Uh I think Lotus can and will (please baby jezzzzus) do much better than this. And lose the Elise mirrors and Exige roll hoop already, this is a 2M$ car... In the meantime the effort of Lotus, Pinifarina and Rimac haven't gone unnoticed by the powers that rule the motorsport industry, hence I give you the brand new SRO GTX World Tour Concept. Quote SRO embraces sustainable motorsport with GTX World Tour Few events can claim the same depth of history as the Total 24 Hours of Spa. First staged in 1924, it began on the tree-lined country roads between Francorchamps, Malmedy, and Stavelot at a time when the automobile industry was rapidly evolving. That same pioneering spirit is at the heart of the GTX World Tour, a new concept that draws its inspiration from the city-to-city contests that laid the foundation stones of motorsport during the early years of the 20th century. Just as those events saw new technologies put to the test, so GTX World Tour will embrace the latest automotive developments. Reserved for machinery that uses alternative energy, it will be split across four classes: GT-X E will cater for electric power; GT-X H competitors will use plug-in hybrid equipment; GT-X H2 will utilise hydrogen-powered cars; while a GT-X A category for autonomous vehicles will be introduced at a later stage. The overall classification will not be determined as in a traditional race but will instead be decided by a combination of the timed competition and on energy consumption. As such, the fastest car that uses the least energy will emerge victorious. The events will take the form of road shows that travel from city to city, with the European leg set to launch the concept in 2021. Further road shows will follow in North America (2022) and in Asia (2023) with multi-discipline competitions taking place along the way, including short-distance circuit races, rally stages and hillclimbs. source : https://www.sro-motorsports.com/news/6/stephane-ratel-outlines-exciting-future-plans-during-annual-total-24-hours-of-spa-press-conference and : https://www.endurance-info.com/fr/sro-lance-le-gtx-world-tour-concept-en-2021/ Edited July 26, 2019 by NedaSay Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
