Citroen E-3POD Antistatic Concept SketchThe Future Car Challenge 2011 takes place on Saturday 5 November and requires entrants to drive a 60-mile route from Brighton to London using the least amount of energy.

For this occasion, students from the RCA’s Vehicle Design programme have been set the challenge of creating an artwork which encapsulates the spirit of the Future Car Challenge in the year 2021.

There will be a private view on Monday 31 October from 7-9pm and the exhibition will remain on display in the Hanging Room until the end of November 2011.

The Royal Automobile Club has a close association with the RCA vehicle design programme, having run exhibitions of students’ work in the past.

This latest exhibition emphasizes the essential link between the young designers of today and the cars of tomorrow – as seen at the annual Future Car Challenge.

Ben Cussons, Chairman of the Royal Automobile Club Motoring Committee, for the Royal Automobile Club, said: “The Royal Automobile Club is very keen to support and encourage the talented designers on the RCA’s programme. The skills and genius of these students will be essential to achieve the developments in motor vehicle technology necessary for a sustainable future.”
