She expanded on the ever-growing technology innovations brought into motorsports and the changes that everyone has witnessed across this industry.
“I found a very good home at Evolectric. We’ve been able to promote what we do as Evolectric as we work together and encourage a lot of the things were doing and bringing it to LATAM. We are trying to bring electrification integration. With my background being in battery systems, we are trying to bring that ecosystem of battery systems and battery development into underserved markets where there is not a lot of that yet“, Nathalie states.
Co-CEO & CTO Bill Beverley then kicked-off the discussion where leaders related to car manufacturers elaborated on the topic of electric motorsports benefitting their sector. The final panel address the questions of “How can electric Motorsports benefit car manufacturers?”.

Bill then discussed some brief history of his experience in Motorsports.
“As I mentioned in the last summit, my own experience in the zero-emission Motorsport arena goes back to my time in special programs, with a lot of familiar faces here, working in that area of Faraday Future. Starting with our collaboration with drag racing for seasons three and four, the Formula-E racing series. Formula E was a great momentous way to get into the industry but also Faraday Future had some success leading the effort in the 2017 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb to outperform the standing production electric vehicle records. Our team at Faraday was fortunate to explore and advance electrified prototypes and production program including collaboration with OEMS partners that operated in the supercar and hyper car vehicle sectors”, Bill explains.
