First Ever Formula E Race This Weekend
12 September 2014
Formula E, the first all-electric racing series, begins this weekend with the inaugural Beijing ePrix running on a specially designed 2.14-mile street circuit around the city’s “Bird’s Nest” stadium from the 2008 Olympic Games.
The races are operated by the same body that runs F1 (the FIA), and they’ll race on some of the tracks used by the famous racing series, but electricity will make for a different sport. High-level competition will highlight the advantages of electric vehicles, like terrific acceleration that can make passing possible on tracks with tight corners.
