Round 5/5
PURE ETCR’s inaugural season visits five circuits, blending traditional permanent venues with urban street tracks. This pushes the abilities of the drivers and the 500kW electric touring cars to the max as teams face the challenge of making their machine the one to beat across a wide range of venues. The first four events are held in Europe, with the finale – which should decide the first Drivers’ and Teams’ Champions – in Asia.

Pau Arnos
Located 20km west of the city of Pau in southwest France – an area steeped in motorsport history – the Pau-Arnos E-Circuit is one of Europe’s most forward-thinking circuits with regards to electric technology. A series of upgrades to the undulating 3.030km circuit in 2018 provided pit boxes with permanent electric charging stations as part of its ‘EV-ready’ infrastructure as it aims to become a zero-emission facility in the near future. The track is currently laying the foundations for a development project around renewable energies and new mobility and has the support of local authorities and major players in both the economy plus energy and environmental research to achieve this.

Gates
Dominating PURE ETCR venues in 2021 will be the Starting Gate. Instead of traditional starting lights, this new innovation makes driver reactions off the line more important than ever before. Nine metres tall and upto 24m wide (the structure is adjustable to suit the circuit width), the Starting Gate allows upto three cars to line-up side by side for the start of each Battle. A random automatic countdown begins as soon as the start button is pressed. As the gates swing open, the beasts are unleashed.
