THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING - A NEW RACE FOR THE FUTURE IS ABOUT TO START
Formula E is a new FIA single-seater championship and the world's first fully-electric racing series. Commencing in September 2014 through to June 2015, the Championship will compete in the heart of 10 of the world's leading cities - including London, Beijing and Los Angeles - racing around their iconic landmarks. For the inaugural season, 10 teams, each with two drivers, will go head-to-head creating a unique and exciting racing series designed to appeal to a new generation of motorsport fans.
One of the most important elements of the FIA Formula E Championship, and the aspect that makes it so unique compared to other motorsport series, is its commitment to tackling environmental issues.
