“This is a very significant day for the championship as we deliver the first race-ready EPCS car to SPV Racing,” said Gemmell. “Years of planning and hard work have gone into delivering this championship and today I’m proud to be presenting a real, thoroughbred, race-ready car that will challenge all comers and thrill fans around the world. This is exactly the caliber of race car that will allow us to showcase and to fully engage the potential of the electric future.”
