Los Angeles To Host Formula E Electric Racing In 2014

The FIA Formula E Championship was officially welcomed to Los Angeles recently, becoming one of 10 global cities to host the world's first fully electric Formula E race, commencing in 2014.

Formula E is a new FIA championship that brings electric vehicle racing to the people, as city centres around the world play host to an electric energy World Championship designed to promote interest and investment in electric vehicles and sustainable motoring.

Los Angeles was selected to host one of the races by Championship promoters Formula E Holdings in part due to its robust and burgeoning electric vehicle infrastructure, in particular Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s (LADWP) Electric Vehicle Program.

Additional cities already chosen to host races include Miami; London and Rome in Europe; Beijing and Putrajaya in Asia; and Buenos Aires and Rio de Janiero in South America, with two locations to be announced.
