Renault has taken up the electric car challenge that is taking place on the 3rd and 4th June at the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb.
The Midland Automobile Club invited all the car manufacturers to enter a variety of classes with the electric class being the main focus, as the venue looks to create some new history at the 122 year old venue.
Renault have grabbed the opportunity and have entered the Renault ZOE Dynamique. With 92hp, 220nm of torque, a top speed of 84mph and a 0-62 time of 13.5 seconds the ZOE will be fully charged and ready to set the first record for a Battery Electric car.
The drivers will be the well renowned Autocar journalist Steve Cropley and his colleague Sam Sheehan sharing the driving over the two days.
Mark Constanduros, Commercial Manager for Shelsley Walsh commented “This is great news. Renault loved the idea we put forward and very quickly committed.”
“This aspect of the event is new for us and one we would like to build on over the next few years, giving the manufacturers a home to promote their products in a live environment in front of potential customers.”
“For Shelsley Walsh it marks another moment in its history books as we invite manufacturers back to this historic venue and create some new history.”
British Racing Green takes place on the 3rd and 4th June to celebrate all things British, Racing and Green or evokes the spirit of British Racing Green, with electric power being the greenest and fastest developing form of power.
