Magnum Cap announced as official charging partner for EGT

The Electric GT (EGT) Championship, the world’s first 100% zero-emissions GT championship, are delighted to announce MAGNUM CAP as their official provider of charging systems.




Founded in 2009, MAGNUM CAP shares Electric GT’s philosophy and vision of utilising clean energy to help improve the lives of future generations.



MAGNUM CAP is one of the world leaders in the manufacturing of charging units and will be developing a brand new, state of the art system, which specifically focuses on reliability and efficiency for the EGT Championship.



There will be 20 CHAdeMO-standard fast charger DC units, which will provide around 55 kW/h of power to each EGT race-prepared Tesla Model S P100D for season one.



MAGNUM CAP currently has installed equipment in 17 countries and the partnership with EGT further enhances both as global icons for sustainability.




MAGNUM CAP CEO José Henriques said: “This partnership is very important to MAGNUM CAP as it is totally aligned with the company’s vision; to make the world a better place by having clean, efficient energy, which is renewable.



The Electric GT Championship will accelerate the world’s transition to sustainability, in particular the adoption of renewable energy in transportation. As an EGT partner, MAGNUM CAP will prove their state of the art, fast-charging technologies at the highest level.“



Electric GT Championship CEO Mark Gemmell added: “I’m very pleased to have MAGNUM CAP on board with us for season one. They have a lot of innovative ideas and experience, which I’m really looking forward to ahead of our inaugural campaign.



“Over the coming days we will also be announcing our electricity supplier. Everything’s beginning to fit in place, and now I’m just excited to get going later this year!”


About Electric GT Championship – New zero-emissions motorsport category promoting sustainable mobility



The championship was announced on 9 March 2016, with the Tesla Model S P100D chosen for the first season, which will get underway in 2017. There will be 20 international drivers, both male and female, racing for 10 professional teams in identical Tesla Model S machines equipped with the latest OMP safety equipment and running on bespoke Pirelli tyres.



EGT will visit seven classic European circuits in its inaugural season, including Paul Ricard, Barcelona, Assen and the Nürburgring, before staging three non-championship races in the Americas.


Weekends will consist of a 20-minute practice session, 60-minute qualifying, a day race (60km) and a dusk race (60km).



Each round will be a weekend-long festival of technology and innovation for sustainability, in and around the circuits. Fans will be able to stream races via Periscope, Twitch and YouTube, as well as interact directly with the teams using social media platforms.
