FIA officially sanctions Tesla

FIA officially sanctions TeslaFIA approval was granted after Electric GT’s Tesla Model S P100D race car passed required crash tests. Formal approval from the same body that sanctions Formula 1, the World Endurance Championship, and Formula E should be a big boost to Electric GT. The series also gives the FIA a production-car-based class to complement Formula E’s single-seaters.

The series will race on major circuits, though scheduling and locations have yet to be decided. Only one team is currently signed up, though Electric GT Holdings, the series organiser, hopes to have enough talent nailed down to run the first races later this year.

In related news, we recently reported about the unveiling of the new Formula E racing cars, which will be used in the 5th season the popular racing series — which will begin a fair while from now … as the 4th season is now ongoing.
