ERA Championship will set a precedent in the history of sustainable motorsports as the category that will promote young talent in search of consolidating the first steps of the drivers in their respective professional careers. Under a promising format and with a long way to go, the championship is being prepared with everything by means of tests and free trials.
The Jarama Circuit in Spain and the mythical Hungaroring track in Hungary have served as a preparation stage, which has extended its days there to give the drivers the opportunity to be in contact with the asphalt as much time as possible, discovering their limits and interpreting the data obtained aboard the official single-seater, Mitsu-Bachi F110e.
Milan De Laet was one of the drivers to test the car, giving his impressions about it. “I went quite well, a very hot day, the car was also hot, but we got enough time and information, plus the car felt good, so we were able to test what we wanted to practice,” he said.
In front of an all-electric universe, De Laet highlighted the aspects that most caught his attention about getting aboard the Mitsu-Bachi F110e, as part of the preparation path ahead of the ERA Championship debut. “The power, when you get that much power it becomes an incredible feeling.”
