Gul Panag, First Indian Women to Drive Formula E Race Car

 

Gul Panag, known for being an enthusiast and adventure junkie, recently drove the M4Electro Formula E race car at the Circuit de Calafat in Catalonia, Spain.

The M4Electro is Mahindra’s fourth generation Formula E race car and a season 4 challenger. Panag herself is a proud owner of a Mahindra e2o Plus city smart car. Mahindra fans will soon be able to experience the power of this new technology as it will soon find its way to the company’s road cars.

Driving a race car is not an easy task, it requires high-level fitness training as the G forces create tremendous stress on the human body. It requires specialised training to ensure quick reflexes and a high level of precision. Before hitting the tracks, Gul was trained on a simulator with Mahindra Racing Formula E Team drivers, Felix Rosenqvist at Mahindra Racing’s Development Centre in Barcelona.

After driving the M4Electro,Gul Panag said “I feel privileged to know that I am amongst very few people in the world, including the motor sport world, to drive this car on what is only its second outing. The M4Electro is supercharged and feels like the e2oPlus on steroids! The powertrain and the speed of delivery did not take me by surprise because I am already familiar with EV technology, having driven the e2oPlus for a while now. With the M4 Electro, Mahindra has also proved that it is well ahead of the curve when it comes to transportation and is thus, well positioned to shape the future of mobility. In fact, I felt like I was driving the future!”
