Rally fans will get a glimpse of the future at the first Green Dragon EV Rally and Show, which takes place in Swansea over the Bank Holiday weekend (23-24 August).
Brecon-based rally driver Sara Williams, who is an FIA Ambassador for Women in Motorsport, will be one of the stars of the event, as she drives the all-new MG ZSEV.
Among the other automotive attractions will be the ground-breaking eRally Zoe Junior Rally car, the much anticipated e-Golf EV from Sinclair Volkswagen, a SUV MG ZS from Bridgend’s Nathaniel Cars, an iPace courtesy of Sinclair Jaguar Swansea, a Tesla Model S85D and Model 3 and a hydrogen fuel celled Riversimple Rasa.
The Green Dragon EV Rally and Show is promoted by the newly formed Wales-based Low Carbon MC, organised by Maesteg Motor Club and supported by Swansea BID.
The event, which is the first combined electric and hydrogen rally of its kind to be held in the UK, sparks into life tomorrow (Friday 23 August) with The Future of Transportation forum taking place in the iconic Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea’s Maritime Quarter.
On Saturday (24 August), cars hit the road on a 60 miles road route from Castle Gardens through Gower, with autotests included on private land.
The event is free for people wishing to come along.
