Eco Grand Prix is a series of races organized since 2013 led by CEO Rafael de Mestre. Rafael’s historic trip around the world in 2012 in an electric car inspired him to create Eco Grand Prix, with the aim of promoting sustainable and eco-friendly mobility. EcoGP’s focus is on endurance and efficiency, making it unique among racing events. This approach means that participants do not need fast charging stations or futuristic batteries to compete, but rather a well-planned and energy-efficient approach.
