According to The Verge, the racing series could start as soon as this year and will see heavily worked-on Tesla P100D sedans with around 778bhp racing around in well-known circuits. However, exact locations, drivers, and championship schedule have not yet been decided.

Rumors have been spreading online that the race weekend will consist of three-heat qualifying rounds and two 60km long races. It is also rumored that the series will have accompanying series in the form of electric kart championships and drifting competitions.
