Formula E Stories July 10

Formula E has had a wild season this year, with unpredictable, close racing and tight championship battles for both drivers and teams.  It’s finally coming to an end this weekend in New York, with races on both Saturday and Sunday to finish out the season.  Jearn-Eric Vergne and Techeetah currently have a big lead for the drivers’ and teams’ championships respectively, but anything could still happen in these last two races.

The track is in Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood, located near the Brooklyn cruise terminal.  The track offers great views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.  We’ll have Seth and Phil on-site at the ePrix this weekend, so if you want live updates from the track, check out our Instagram.

The Formula E championship is coming up on its last few races of the season, with only this and the upcoming doubleheader in New York left to round it out.  This weekend Formula E returns to Switzerland for only the second auto race in the country in more than half a century.

In 1955, Switzerland banned auto racing nationwide in response to the 1955 Le Mans disaster where hundreds of spectators were killed or injured by a horrific crash.  This ban remained in place for 60 years until the country repealed it in 2015 – but only for electric racing.  The move was made to attract Formula E to the country, and last year Zurich held the first race in Switzerland since the ban was implemented.  This year the race moves to a new track in the de facto Swiss capital city of Bern with an interesting feature near the exit of turn 4 – an actual bear pit.  Like, a pit.  With bears in it.

After a surprisingly exciting race at the often-processional Monaco circuit, Formula E continues this crazy season at the Berlin ePrix at Tempelhof airport this weekend.  Last year Audi swept their home race with a 1-2 finish, will they be able to repeat the feat and get back in the running for the teams’ championship this year?

The principality of Monaco, an enclave for the rich and famous which houses its fair share of exotic cars, has been a racing mecca for 90 years.  But it’s not just gas cars which find a home here – the famous Monaco Grand Prix circuit, site of the most prestigious race in the world, hosts Formula E for the third time this weekend.

Not only does Monaco host the ePrix, but in addition, the Prince of Monaco, Albert II, has been an electric car supporter for quite some time.  He even owns a Model S and drove it around the circuit for a parade lap before the Grand Prix a few years ago.
