Eye-catching Gen3 car made of electronic scrap at the Hankook London E-Prix

Envision Racing presented a real eye-catcher in the Fan Village at the Hankook London E-Prix: a Gen3 car made entirely of electronic scrap. The reproduction of the Formula E race car was created by artist “Lazerian” (Liam Hopkins) using discarded electronics from across Great Britain. A large variety of scrap materials were used, ranging from laptops, mobile phones and vapes to chargers and games consoles. The car was built to raise awareness of the increasing global issue of electronic waste.

For decades, Hankook has been one of the first ports of call when it comes to international motorsport. Hankook supplies its race tyres to globally-renowned series, high-class junior formats and popular grassroot events. With new collaborations and partnerships, the company is constantly enhancing its status as a global player on the motorsport scene. Since the 2023 season, Hankook has been the new and exclusive technical partner and tyre supplier of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. In close cooperation with Formula E, the iON Race was developed for the world championship. Roughly 30 percent of the high-performance tyre is made of sustainable materials. With this commitment, Hankook is taking another pioneering step towards energy efficiency and sustainability in motorsport. The premium tyre maker has also agreed a further collaboration with Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini Squadra Corse and has been official technical partner and exclusive tyre supplier of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo since 2023. Hankook’s portfolio covers a broad spectrum. This includes the 24H Series powered by Hankook, one of the most prestigious endurance series in the world, as well as the FIA ERC4 Junior Championship on the rally scene.
