    GP-Elec French Grand Prix

    press release:

    The first 100% electric city-course Grand Prix

    City Council approves plans for the first ever GP Elec Levallois,
    an all electric Grand Prix.

    Monday, December 14 2009, Levallois City Council approved plans for the organization of the first GP Elec Levallois.
    The Grand Prix and surrounding events will take place on the 4, 5, and 6 of June 2010. It will be an amazing showcase
    of electric vehicles. Levallois city council approved Mobygreen’s plans for the event after months of planning
    and preparation in secret.
    The course will take high-powered TESLA cars and electric racing prototypes around a 3km course (1.8 miles)
    through the city. The course has 8 bends, a tunnel, and an 800 meter straight.
    The cars- although high powered- will be quiet, making the event free of sound pollution and something completely
    new for the public. Their cheers will be louder than the cars’ engines.
    In the spirit of an old-fashioned grand prix it is completely free to the public. Spectators will have the chance to see
    the cars up close after each race.
    The Grand Prix will host a Sustainable Mobility Salon in the city’s square, where the public will be able to learn more
    about electric vehicles, environmental concerns, and innovations in transportation. The salon will have events for
    children and adults, including electric go-karts, children cars, and an eco-educational garden.
    GP Elec is a free, eco-friendly event.

    About Levallois:
    Levallois is located in the north-western suburbs of Paris, France. The city has a strong relationship with industry,
    as seen by the gear wheel on its coat-of-arms. The history of Levallois is inseparable of that of the automobile. The
    establishment of companies such as Clement-Bayard, Delage, and Chapron gave way to the importance of auto manufacturing
    in the city. The Citroen ‘2cv’ which will remain legendary, forever etched into automobile history, was
    produced for 40 years in Levallois. Today, the City of Levallois supports strong message of environmental protection-
    including all sectors of the automobile industry.

    About Mobygreen:
    The company’s name embodies its driving force- to deliver ‘green mobility.’ The two founders, Franck Moritz, a
    young entrepreneur, 33 years old, whose concern for the environment manifests in his business ; and Phillipe
    Poincloux, 57 years old ,entrepreneur and Team Manager of Team Luc Alphand Aventures, strive to raise awareness
    of environmentally-friendly development.

    Thanks for that, I couldn't find the GP Elec website before and had to depend only on what was available from EMXGP for this post.
