There was an unfortunate event at the repair shop where the ecoGP Safety Car is being repaired. A fire started caused by a lamp and it damaged a good part of the service. Luckily, none of the cars were affected by this incident.
We have very good news for the ecoGP Safety Car! The repair price dropped from an initial €70.000 to an estimated €20.000 and the latest quote is €11000. Looks like the ecoGP Safety Car will be back on the race track very soon!
