Into the New Decade with EEMS 2020
The Niche Vehicle Network were delighted to support the MIA Energy Efficient Motorsport Conference (EEMS 2020) earlier this month. It was a highly successful and engaging event with presentations and panel discussions ranging from reducing carbon emissions in Motorsport to improving energy efficiency in the UK leisure marine sector and all the collaborative opportunities this presents.
It was great to see the involvement of a number of niche vehicle manufacturers including a spotlight presentation on the “Benefit of Collaboration” from Delta Motorsport and technology showcases including RML Group, Rockfort Engineering, DC Electronics, Ricardo, Silverstone Composites, SPAL Automotive, WMG and Titan.
Niche Vehicle Network look forward to working with the MIA during the coming year.
