CTOUCH launching partner of Formula-E bid 2021/2022
CTOUCH proudly announces to be one of the launching partners of the Formula-E bid 2021/2022. Formula-E is a racing class for electric cars. The races are all set on street circuits, usually in the centre of a city. The big dream for the 2021/2022 season: organising world’s first night race of the Formula-E in Eindhoven, the home of CTOUCH and the heart of technology and innovation.
Getting the Formula-E to Eindhoven is not just about organising an exciting race event. The coming months will be full of additional activities and campaigns to activate and engage the city of Eindhoven, creating a broader supporting platform.
As one of the most innovative players in the Brainport region Eindhoven, CTOUCH is a perfect fit to the DNA of Formula-E racing. CFO Bernard Gosselink: ‘Continuous technological innovations are making Eindhoven a unique city in the world. We truly feel at home here and we want to take responsibility in putting the city promptly on the world map. That’s one of the reasons why we jumped into this adventure.’
CEO Remmelt van der Woude continues: ‘We also see this bid as a way to show both young talents and experienced entrepreneurs that CTOUCH is an exciting company to work with and to work for. On top of that, our mission to minimize our CO2 footprint perfectly matches the concept of E-racing. With our unique initiatives such as our circularity passport, our modular BRIX concept and our plans for giving our touchscreens a second or even third life, we hope to inspire other Formula-E partners as well.’
The bid book will be ready in March 2021. In June 2021, the Formula E Holding will reveal if the bid for the first Formula-E race in The Netherlands has been accepted. Fingers crossed!
