INNOVATION

A hemp fiber bodywork for the the Giulia ETCR

Bercella and the Milanese manufacturer brought a great technical innovation for the final stage of the PURE ETCR championship on the Pau-Arnos track

After having supported Romeo Ferraris in the design and construction phases of the first version of the Giulia ETCR carbon fiber bodywork, Bercella and the Milanese manufacturer brought a great technical innovation for the final stage of the PURE ETCR championship on the Pau-Arnos track, on the last weekend: the Giulia ETCR of the Opera manufacturer will use for the first time a hemp fiber bodywork, an eco-sustainable material, perfectly in line with the latest market trends and with the growing attention to the environment, the very vocation of the PURE ETCR championship.

This is a project that also involves other Italian companies, including Fibertech Group, based in Mornago (Varese) as a supplier of materials in collaboration with the Linificio and Canapificio Nazionale.

The Giulia ETCR by Romeo Ferraris driven by Rodrigo Baptista, Luca Filippi, Philipp Eng and Oliver Webb in PauArnos now is mountng some parts of the bodywork made of the MJ 404/100 fabric.

Natural fiber-based composites are experiencing increasing applications also in the automotive sector, thanks to their eco-sustainability combined
with properties of weight, elasticity and resistance comparable to carbon, which in the last forty years has become a standard in the world of racing, imported from the aerospace sector.

Romeo Ferraris is perfectly in line with the philosophy of PURE ETCR, the series for electric touring cars inaugurated this season to explore new propulsion technologies linked to the mobility of the future. Discovery Event, the organizer of the championship, has thought from the beginning of various initiatives in favor of sustainability, including the choice of race venues, logistics, car refilling systems or the reduction of consumables.
