ErinSport will enter two cars into the LMP1 Hybrid category. Driver details are as follows:

Chassis #1

  • Jordan Jacobsen, 33 [DNK]
    The plucky yet suave Dane has made most of his career in the USA racing with Nohda in the IMSA/WeatherTech Sports for the past 6 years, but has been rumoured to have been being scouted out by ErinSport for much of 2017. He now has a 2 season contract with the team.
  • Nathan King, 37 [GBR]
    A well seasoned endurance racer, King rose to fame in the European Le Mans Series with the Pescarolo-ErinSport team, before joining the 2011 ErinSport team at Le Mans, racing in the GT09 until it was pulled from competition in 2013.
  • Alek Rodcheski, 38 [POL]
    Rodcheski is perhaps the star of ErinSport, having joined through their Juniors program in 1999 before working his way up through just about every series the motorsport operation competes in to now be considered perhaps the single best driver in their roster. His place on this team was a given.

Chassis #2

  • Danny Garland-Monsort, 28 [USA]
    Another driver who made his fame in IMSA, Garland-Monsort raced with Maine’s motorsport division for a number of years in their Daytona Prototypes before being offered a place on the ErinSport WEC team. The Texan is noted for his keen skill to find half a second from any lap time, whatever the cost.
  • Felix Lemaire, 35 [FRA]
    A star of the French motorsport team, Lemaire has a had a varied career including running with the prestigious Merciel World Rally Team. A change of heart has seen him turn towards Endurance racing , and he’s been in talks with ErinSport to join their team for most of this winter.
  • Edvard Stojanović, 34 [HRV]
    The Croatian GT car driver has seen considerable success in the Blancpain GT series, and joined the WEC with a privateer team in 2014. He was scouted out as a potential for the ErinSport team when he put in a number of impressive stints at the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans.

2018 Erin Scarlet GTE-18

The Scarlet GTE-18 continues on from the Scarlet GT introduced last year, now designed to comply with GTE regulations and modified in various ways to favour endurance over sprint racing.

Details about the car are being kept fairly hushed for the sake of competition, though ErinSport can confirm the following:

  • A race tuned version of the 4.0l V8 used in the road-going 400X trim is under the bonnet, producing 546 hp
  • Kerb weight of 1312 kg
  • 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 220 mph+
  • Green Hell Lap Time of ~7:25

The driver line up is as follows:

Chassis #1

  • Tom Deeley, 26 [GBR]
    With a career that started in kart racing, Deeley was talent scouted by ErinSport at the age of 18. He switched a potential career in Formula 3 for a career in high-end touring car racing, competiting with the ErinSport WTCC team for 4 seasons prior to joining the WEC team.
  • Charlotte Griffiths, 27 [GBR]
    Another driver who’s career began with the ErinSport juniors team, Griffiths raced in the infamous ErinSport BTCC team from 2012 to 2015, as well as gaining experience with the Aihara WEC team before being shortlisted to run with the Scarlet this season.
  • Georgina Stevens, 26 [GBR]
    Stevens is a rising star in the European Le Mans Series, gaining her first podium at just 22 at the 4 Hours of Imola in 2014. Her current contract was set to run out at the end of last year, making it a perfect opportunity to bring her on board this season.

Chassis #2

  • Aren Geisler, 30 [GER]
    One of DTM’s more recognisable drivers, Geisler has found enough time in his calendar to bring his fierce driving ability to the ErinSport team. His experience with heavy homologated cars made him a surefire choice to race with the Scarlet this season.
  • Josef Isaksson, 25 [SWE]
    The charismatic and charming Swede joined ErinSport via the Juniors program and has earned his name in touring car racing. His ambition has always been to enter GT car racing, making this a perfect opportunity to jump his career up.
  • Willard Stern, 28 [GER]
    A talent who’s been in high demand, Stern has spent much of his career racing with Shromet and ACA in the GT classes of IMSA. ErinSport were keen to bring him on board for his capability with strategy and pacing, making him well suited to endurance racing.

Telefónica was renamed, some years back ago, to Movistar.

Negative

Movistar (Spanish pronunciation: [moβisˈtar]) is a major telecommunications brand owned by Telefónica

Telefónica exists, but the consumer products were renamed to Movistar, at least on Spain.

Telefónica is the matrix, and Movistar the sub brand.

Yes. Thank you for clarifying that.

It looks awesome!

How can a single speed transmission have modes? Also, batteries need some cooling, so I’m not sure if leaving no openings for it is such a great idea.

I can concur. Its design language should be used for all future Samindas.

i imagine it could provide different power delivery options. so like a linear response, or maybe a very fast initial acceleration for city driving ect.

Then those aren’t transmission modes.

Maesima Motor Corporation unveiled its sL1000 premium luxury sedan for the Sachiuri brand at the 2017 Antiyita International Motor Show, the new flagship of the brand’s model line-up. The all-new Sachiuri sL1000 will compete at the top of the luxury car segment with truly world-class design and technological innovations with the highest levels of refinement, convenience and dynamic performance.



The sL1000 builds on Sachiuri’s unmistakable Evoco design language introduced with the entry-level sL200 sedan. The strikingly bold design with a coupe-like silhouette punctuated by flowing organic Evoco design language. A new driver-centric performance feel comes from building the sL1000 on the company’s all-new critically acclaimed rear wheel drive global architecture for luxury vehicles (SL.I). This premium rear-wheel-drive platform, an extended version of the one used for the stunning new Sachiuri Sagitta sports coupe, will offer a more dynamic experience on the road while further improving comfort.



The sL1000 silhouette is both powerful and refined, with its prominent hood, generous wheelbase, minimized overhangs and sophisticated rear deck surfacing. Inside the cabin, fine materials and textures from around the world meet refined ergonomics to provide occupants with absolute convenience and luxurious comfort.The sL1000 stands out from the field with its flowing organic design and supreme quality. It’s strikingly bold exterior highlight the companies design ethos to focus on the creating a vehicle that is both luxurious yet unique and bold.



“The sL1000 is the flagship of the Sachiuri brand", said chief designer, Erik Schweitzer "We’re taking on an extremely competitive segment, which is why more than any other model, it has to embody everything the brand stands for and that’s why we’ve been so extensive and focused in all elements of its development.”

At its market introduction, the all-new Sachiuri sL1000 will start out with the option of RWD or Sachirui’s X-TRAC AWD system and three engine options in most markets, an extensively re-engineered 3.2 V6 ActivBoost engine, the 4.4 V8 ActivBoost version. But the big news is all-new flagship V10 engine, this naturally aspirated 4.5 develops over 500 hp. All engines offer supreme refinement, ample performance and high efficiency. Appearing later will be a mild hybrid variant developed with new battery technology which will drive down fuel consumption even further in real driving conditions.



In addition to bold styling, new powertrains and opulent interior, the sL1000 is full of innovative technology. Its the most advanced vehicle Sachiuri have ever built. From launch, the vehicle will be available with Sachiuri’s automatic driver and traffic control system that enables Level 3 autonomous driving. The car takes over the task of driving in certain situations. Unlike at Level 2, the driver no longer needs to monitor it permanently.

They must merely be capable of taking back responsibility whenever the system prompts them to, with the system active, the driver can relax. They can take their hands off the steering wheel permanently and, depending on national laws, focus on a different activity that is supported by the car, such as watch a TV program on the 12-inch SACHIURI iX infotainment display in the centre console.

During highly automated travel a small camera in the driving area detects if the driver tires or falls sleep. If that happens, a multi-stage warning is given. As soon as the speed rises above 60 km/h (37.3 mph) or the line of vehicles breaks up, the traffic jam pilot informs the driver that they need to take charge of driving once again. If they ignore this prompt and the subsequent warnings, the new sL1000 is braked to a standstill.


Detailed information will soon be available on the Sachiuri webpage.

Press day 2 isn’t quite done yet, so we’re gonna wait a little while longer before summarising all that. In the mean time, however, I’ve been on a load of roadtests. Time to see what some of the hottest new vehicles at this year’s show are really like once they’re off the display stands.

Mont Royal Deco Vision 2025 Concept

Following the RCM Ace Vision 2025 Concept, Mont Royal’s designers have designed their own interpretation for the return to the twenties. The design is inspired by the art deco style that began in the 1920s but offers a modern twist on it from this century. The Deco Vision 2025 Concept’s cabin can accomodate four occupants in supreme comfort, with the unequal smoothness of a naturally aspirated V12 for driving comfort and performance.
