InVivo, a major player in the European agricultural sector, has announced a partnership with e-Trophée Andros, the world's largest ice racing competition, which has been fully electric since 2020.

Following on from rugby, InVivo is continuing to share its passion for sport and its values like team spirit, self-betterment and innovation. A pioneer in the promotion of electric motorsport, e-Trophée Andros also embodies those strong values.

Thierry Blandinières, CEO of InVivo, said: "The partnership between InVivo and e-Trophée Andros allows us to engender a team spirit within the group through our employees. The values of the sport will boost our corporate project and collective spirit. The will to rise to challenges, have courage and commit oneself to the cause is essential at InVivo".  

The races take place with electric Andros Sport cars, equipped with four-wheel drive with four-wheel steering. This unique spectacle takes place on legendary ice circuits at ski resorts:

  • 9 and 10 December at Val Thorens
  • 15 and 16 December in Andorra
  • 12 and 13 January at Isola 2000
  • 19 and 20 January at Lans-en-Vercors
  • 27 January at Super-Besse

The InVivo car can be recognised by the ear of corn on its roof, which highlights the agricultural sector and agricultural regions. It also features the new motto La victoire, ça se cultive (meaning 'Success is cultivated') which was introduced during the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
