Partnership between Electric GT and Bcomp

November 20 2017

Electric GT has set up a partnership with Bcomp to develop bespoke renewable lightweight composite panels for the Electric GT racing car. Based on its powerRibs technology and ampliTex products, Bcomp’s renewable high-performance lightweight materials will allow for a 500 kg (over 20%) weight reduction in the race-prepared Tesla Model S EGT P100D.

When compared to carbon composite parts, this revolutionary flax fiber technology allows for increased damping and stiffness without increasing weight and removes risk of shattering in crash scenario.

Bcomp is also developing LED arrays to be fully integrated into panels, displaying live information on the exterior of the racing car. The special panels were put into action at the first ever public test of the Electric GT racing car at the inaugural Day of Light at Pau E-Circuit on November 18. The inaugural Electric GT Championship will begin in 2018 - the world’s first all-electric production car racing series.
