New electric Junior 1000 car in build by erally
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.
On each round of the British Rally Championship, drivers can play their ‘joker’ card, which allows them to score double points on that event, but they can only play the card once. Here are the drivers that will score double points on the RSAC Scottish.
David Bogie (BRC 1) Umberto Acconero (DMACK BRC Junior) Chris Wheeler (BRC 3) Tony Simpson (BRC 4) Lee Hastings (National Rally Cup) Robert Blomberg (National Rally Cup) Tharique Fazal (National Rally Cup)
