The Furious Formula E
A weekend of jam-packed racing action is ahead of us.
Formula E is the new FIA eprix and the world’s first electric only racing series. Going on from September 2014 to June 2015 and competing in 10 of the world’s leading cities. 10 teams with 2 drivers each create an exciting circuit racing experience. Formula E’s fully electric cars establish an example for clean energy and sustainability. The race challenges drivers, engineers and mechanics to create technology that’ll last well into the future vehicle market.
Long Beach is the 6th round of the season, right in beautiful sunny south California along the coast. Using the well known Long Beach track would be a comforting advantage for the racers who have been on the circuit for IndyCar many times before, but with a few tweaks making the track shorter and more suitable for the quick and torque prone Spark Renault, adds an edge that may require a safety car to guide and limit the speedsters for safety. With a seven turn track, the tension will stay hot and adrenaline high.
The race takes place on April 4th 2015 marking the half-ish point in an 11 race season. At 2.1km with 7 turns and a start line adjacent to the marina, we’re in for an exciting race.
