GREENPOWER RETURNS TO SILVERSTONE
Following the closure of Rockingham, the Greenpower International Finals will be held at Silverstone on October 17, 20 years to the day since its first event at Goodwood.
Staged annually by the Greenpower Education Trust since 1999, the competition for school-age students to design, build and race an electric car will be held at the home of the British Grand Prix for the first time since 2013. It had been based at Rockingham from ’15 until last year’s event in October.
Development and partnerships officer Gavin Woodruff said: “We are delighted to be hosting the International Finals 2019 at Silverstone Circuit, bringing Greenpower racing back to the famous venue for the first time since ’13 when it hosted the Season Opener and Corporate Challenge.”
Greenpower previously announced that it will stage new heat events on the streets of Hull, and at Lotus’s Hethel test track.
