The EPrix NYC will be the first FIA-sanctioned motorsports event to take place in any of the five boroughs of New York City in modern history. The 1.95 kilometer circuit will feature 10 turns as it winds through the waterfront neighborhood of Red Hook in Brooklyn, and with stunning views of the iconic Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty in the background.
Formula E driver Antonio Felix da Costa says, “To be the first FIA series to race in New York City is going to be amazing and the track layout looks really cool. We are going to be racing in a central part of New York City, one of the greatest cities in the world! To have a motorsports race, especially with Formula E, where we are part of the innovation of all the electric powertrains in the world, we will create awareness for all the people that have had question marks about this.”
We want to thank Formula E for providing this opportunity to our readers. If you are the winner of the tickets and wish to share your race weekend experience with others, we will be happy to publish your thoughts so others can learn what it is like to attend a Formula E race.
