G-Zero Championship Racing Series Inc., North America’s first motorsports championship to feature all-electric Zero Emission karts is pleased to announce EVC Racing of Indianapolis, IN as the official builder for the 2016 race series. EVC Racing Karts will combine the heart-pounding thrill of speed with the pursuit of a green future in a revolutionary new motorsports format.

The acquisition of these karts further solidifies the Series’ 2016 racing season. The Series plans to host six Championship events throughout Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island ­ dates and locations to be announced soon. The Series will challenge Drivers and their Teams at a variety of unique temporary circuits in some of the region’s most vibrant and iconic venues.

“Electric motorsports is where the battery electric automotive industry will earn it’s ‘track record’,” says Greg Webster, President and Founder of the series. “Through our free to the public Racing Events, we will entertain audiences with the heart­pounding skill of our Drivers who will race a nearly silent kart at over 100 km/h.”

Karting’s heritage as the grassroots entry for motorsports enthusiasts into the sport is also reflected in the Series desire to feature homegrown talent and to be a proving ground for tomorrow’s technology, in a exhilarating and challenging fashion that is open to all those who dream fast and aspire for racing glory.

Beyond the Championship events, the Series will provide a wide range of avenues in which the public can engage with the Series.
