Between tests and exhibitions have passed the last weeks of E1 Series, the 100% electric powerboat championship that prepares for its debut in 2023, where gradually has been revealing important details regarding the completion of the series. One of them has been the confirmation of Gianluca Carli as the first driver to be officially announced.
The news was revealed after E1 Series was in Venice for an exhibition of the RaceBird, the vehicle that will bring the championship to life. The place was the right place for such revelation, since months ago the first team to be part of the division of the seas was known: Venice Racing Team, which will count on Carli’s talent behind the wheel.
Gianluca is considered one of the most talented drivers to have ever competed in powerboats on the international circuit. Born in 1990, he has everything at his disposal to succeed in the championship created by Alejandro Agag and Rodi Basso, where marine ecosystem restoration and conservation is the main reason to compete.
Among his sporting achievements is winning the 69th Pavia-Venice Raid, which will serve as preparation when the time comes for him to climb into the Official Vehicle of the series. “Ladies and gentlemen, it is an honor for me to present to you the RaceBird, which I will be driving for E1 Series in 2023,” said Carli on his official Instagram account.
