About

The Series

An accessible driving series for those looking to compete in a road-course environment with EVs. Competing with similar cars means it’s all down to the driver and car setup.

EVs are reliable, fun to drive, cheap to run, and incredibly evenly matched. The perfect base for some classic touring car fun!

A unique format allows for a close battling experience without the risk of wheel-to-wheel racing, and a lower barrier to entry as road-going cars can be used. The perfect combination of daily driver and track car!

Growing tired of lapping days? Not enough power to be competitive in time attack? Looking for the next step? Maybe the Model 3 Challenge is just what you’re looking for.

ABOUT

The Cars

 

 Using power limited Model 3’s, the cars are able to compete in short sprints without the worry of power reduction.

Lower power also means closer racing as the cars are easier to master. It’s all down who makes the fewest mistakes.

Limited car configuration will ensure that all cars are similar, maximizing the fun for everyone involved and ensuring no one is getting an obtusely unfair advantage.

For the first season, road cars are permitted so the initial investment is quite reasonable! 

Fair Play

With similar cars, it all comes down to the driver. Some of the most exciting competition has come from series’ with equal cars so we’re very excited to see the close battles to come!

Build One Yourself

The complete car build kit can be purchased directly from participating dealers or MPP directly. Alternatively, you can purchase a car ready to race!

Rewards Weight To Keep It Tight

Winners will get heavier race by race, giving everyone a chance at victory. 

All The Data

With heaps of available channels in the optional data system, you can learn and improve race by race, moving your way closer to the front.
