Move over Formula 1, we've got a new racer in town! Last year Formula E, the global all-electric racing circuit, made history on the streets of Brooklyn. Hundreds of concrete barriers constructed a 1.21-mile track on the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. The NYC ePrix offered racing fans their first glimpse into this new sport taking the racing world by storm.
This year, the Formula E team is back at it, hosting its final championship race of the season back in Brooklyn on July 14th and 15th.
Frenchman, Jean-Eric Vergne, leads the Driver's Championship points chase after the Rome ePrix with Sam Bird in striking distance after his win in Rome. With 5 rounds left, we wouldn't be surprised if it came down to the NYC ePrix double header to crown this year's Formula E champion. The next round takes points leader JEV to his home turf in the Paris ePrix.
We're excited to share that RPM Raceway will be partnering with Formula E in a number of ways.
- Official Viewing Parties- Join us as we tune in to Formula E races on the TV's throughout our track locations paired with some sweet racing discounts and a chance to win a pair of tickets to the NYC ePrix (at select RPM locations). Viewing parties take place the weekends of the Formula E races, times to be announced.
- Ticket Raffle- RPM Raceway will be raffling off four tickets to catch the race in the grandstands. Entries will start April 18th and last until May 28th. Winners will be chosen and notified on May 31st.
With the new Gen2 Formula E car and new entrants Nissan and BMW debuting next season (Porsche and Mercedes joining FE in season 6), the future development of sustainable mobility looks promising and incredibly exciting.
RPM Raceway is proud to share in the belief and practice of promoting clean energy and sustainability and proud to call Formula E a friend and partner in the global race to electric adoption.
