Formula E to Introduce Youth Competition, the NXT Gen Cup, in Addition to DTM Events

In an effort to promote youth participation and cultivate the next generation of racing stars, Formula E has announced plans to introduce the NXT Gen Cup, an event open to participants between the ages of 15 and 25. The event, which is still pending approval from the International Automobile Federation, will provide young racers with the opportunity to compete alongside Formula E’s world-class players.

The NXT Gen Cup is set to kick off at Misano, Italy on April 13, with subsequent races scheduled for Monaco, Berlin, and London. Participants in the NXT Gen Cup will have the chance to showcase their skills behind the wheel of the LRT NXT1, a modified vehicle based on the Mini Cooper SE. The LRT NXT1 features a front-wheel drive motor capable of producing 180 horsepower, with an additional 60 horsepower through the transmission system. The vehicle also boasts a 30kWh battery capacity and an 800V motor system, as well as an adjustable Ohlins suspension system and Hankook semi-slick all-season tires.

One of the unique aspects of the NXT Gen Cup is that all participants will compete with the same configuration and settings of the vehicle. The competition will consist of two 20-minute practice sessions, followed by a 20-minute qualifying session and official races.

Formula E sees the introduction of the NXT Gen Cup as a way to not only provide young racers with a platform to showcase their talent, but also to promote the development of future racing events. The inclusion of youth participation alongside the existing DTM events is expected to bring a new level of excitement to the world of touring car racing.
