The man­u­fac­tur­ers of a new elec­tric rally car are hop­ing to have a ded­i­cated cham­pi­onship by 2018 as de­vel­op­ment work on its Re­nault Zoe pro­gresses.

The Zoe was launched at Coven­try Motofest ear­lier this month and is built to sim­i­lar spec­i­fi­ca­tion as the cur­rent Ju­nior For­mula 1000 cham­pi­onship ve­hi­cles.

The er­ally project co-or­di­na­tor Jean Hay is hope­ful the new car will be com­pet­i­tive against the cur­rent Ju­nior F1000 cars be­fore the se­ries rolls out the er­ally Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship in un­der two years time.

“We got quite a lot of at­ten­tion in Coven­try, the de­but of the Re­nault Zoe,” said Hay.
