Former Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team technical director Paddy Lowe will present his vision for racing with his new venture Zero Petroleum at Autosport Connect on March 11.
Speaking following the announcement, Lowe said:
The need to move away from fossil fuels has never been clearer. “We are in a climate emergency. Electric vehicles are fantastic for many situations where weight and endurance aren’t performance imperatives. However, the low energy density of batteries compared to liquid petroleum fuels (gasoline, kerosene, diesel) means there are many applications where electric power isn’t an option and won’t be in the foreseeable future.”
Autosport International Operations Director Mandy Cox commented saying:
Motorsport technology can help bring solutions to the climate crisis and we are making this a headline topic at ASI Connect. We are delighted that Paddy will bring his vision to the debate alongside the pioneers of electric motorsport.”
