Romeo Ferraris stars at "New Mobility Messina" with the Giulia ETCR
The Giulia ETCR of Romeo Ferraris was a special guest at "New Mobility Messina", the event held in the Sicilian city from 15 to 18 December to promote the mobility of the future. The car designed and developed by the Opera-based manufacturer, a protagonist on international circuits in the 2021 and 2022 seasons, fits perfectly into this context embodying the potential of electric propulsion, also in the racing world.
The exhibition itinerary of New Mobility Messina was set up in the pedestrian area of Viale San Martino and Piazza Cairoli, with the inauguration taking place on Thursday 15 in the presence of the mayor Federico Basile, the deputy mayor Salvatore Mondello and the president of Atm SpA, Giuseppe Campagna.
The Giulia ETCR of Romeo Ferraris was the protagonist in the area dedicated to electric motorsport, but the offer of the event also included the presence of historic models, of the latest hybrid and electric generation of cars and motorcycles, as well as the possibility of trying out electric scooter bikes, scooters, e-bikes and professional driving simulators.
The FIA ETCR, the championship for full-electric touring cars, has seen Romeo Ferraris at the starting line since the first edition, called PURE ETCR, while in 2022 the category received the prestigious label from the FIA. It is one of the most important series in motorsport for zero-emission vehicles, with cars capable of delivering a maximum power of 500 kilowatts (670 horsepower), through four electric motors connected to the rear wheels. The Romeo Ferraris has conquered two victories, in 2021 on the Copenhagen street circuit and in 2022 on the Belgian track of Zolder, battling against opponents from larger groups in the automotive sector.
Michela Cerruti, Romeo Ferraris Team Principal
"When the championships are over and there is no activity on the track, it's nice to keep interest in the world of engines alive with an event like New Mobility Messina, which we were pleased to attend by exhibiting the Giulia ETCR. This project is the main calling card of our company, the most evident demonstration of our engineering and sporting skills, and has allowed us in these two years to fight on equal terms against two giants of the automotive industry. We always welcome initiatives such as New Mobility Messina with enthusiasm especially in a region like Sicily where the passion for motorsport is very intense and deeply-rooted".
