Major Racing Bodies Back Electric Vehicle Series

There is a big push to go green with everyday passenger cars and trucks that cruise the nation’s highways. Much of the green focus has been on EVs and hybrid cars that use electricity.

One place that we have seen some hybrid technology come into play where you might not expect it has been at the racetrack. Some of the biggest names in the sports car and racing world, such as Porsche, are toying with battery power. Porsche has used a KERS system on one of its cars for a power boost.

Green racing is set to become much more popular in the future thanks to the American Le Mans Series and IMSA partnering with Quimera of Barcelona, Spain. The three firms are pushing for electric vehicle racing as the next logical step in sustainable motorsports. The goal is to create a global championship based on cars that don’t use fossil fuel of any sort.

“We have often quoted the fact that the most important race in the world is the race among automobile manufacturers to develop new sustainable transportation solutions,” ALMS President and CEO Scott Atherton said.
