New Firsts for the 2023 Event
Ignitis ON, the title sponsor of the event, is also the largest fast-charging network for electric vehicles in Lithuania. This year, an official race opening ceremony will be held at the Ministry of Economics and Innovations with welcome speeches from Transport, Economics and Innovations, Energy Viceministers and the Vilnius Mayor.
For the first time, the race will start from the main Vilnius street (Gedimino).
For the first time, the race will feature electric trucks.
Although starting from the Lithuanian capital as usual, this year’s finish line will be at a new location. The vehicles will drive from Lithuania’s capital city Vilnius to the port city of Klaipėda (the main port of Lithuania), where all drivers will have the possibility to test electric boats. Klaipėda is the first city in Lithuania to introduce electric bus routes as well as electric boat services.
