Formula E TicketsFormula E racing combines sports class racing with eco-friendly, electric-powered race cars. This is for race fans and potential race fans who support environmental sustainability as a way of life. Formula E race cars are quieter by around 50 decibels than Formula 1 race cars with fuel-powered engines, and they also create less pollution and fewer other environmental impacts than their fuel-powered counterparts. It may be the future of racing. Formula E racing started in 2014 under the control of the International Automobile Federation (FIA). Initially, the season consisted of 11 races with seven different drivers claiming wins. It is the equivalent of Formula 1 racing. A Formula 1 race is a high-speed road course race known as a grand prix using gas-powered race cars. Just like Formula 1 races, Formula E races are held in various countries around the world. As with all automotive racing, the research and development of Formula E race cars has helped in the development of electric-powered passenger cars.

How does the use of electric cars in Formula E racing affect racing?Originally, unlike Formula 1 racing, drivers needed two cars per race because there was not enough energy storage in the batteries to finish the race with one car. Now, Formula E racing uses a 385-kilogram lithium-ion battery from Williams Advanced Engineering Ltd that provides twice the energy storage capacity. This allows cars to go twice as far. As a result, only one car is needed. Fans won't notice any significant difference in the start-up speed of Formula 1 and Formula E cars. Both the gas-powered and the electric-powered race cars can reach 62 mph in around 2.8 seconds. However, the top speed for Formula 1 cars is 230 mph, while the top speed for Formula E race cars is 174 mph.
Are there special rules for Formula E races?Because of the battery energy storage issues and the time needed to recharge the batteries, practice sessions, qualifying times and the race length had to be adapted for battery-powered cars versus gas-powered cars. Gas-powered cars just need a fill-up, and then, can go farther on that fill-up. Formula E events include only a 45-minute practice session followed by a 30-minute practice on the day of the race. A one-hour qualifying session consists of four groups of five or six drivers running for six minutes at up to 250 kW to achieve their best lap also on race day. The six top drivers participate in the Super Pole shoot-out. Races last 45 minutes plus one lap to accommodate the charge life of the batteries. Tire usage is also limited for environmental reasons. Tires are only changed if they are damaged. During the race, the maximum allowable power is 200 kW.
How do drivers win the season championship?Drivers earn points for their finish positions, acquiring pole positions and achieving the fastest lap in each race. Fans influence each race with Fanboost by voting to give their favorite driver an extra power boost. Drivers also can use Attack Mode and gain an additional 25 kW of power by driving through a designated off-track area.
What are the characteristics of Formula E racetracks?The race course is set up on the streets of major cities around the world. A course can have laps that are two to three kilometers with a total distance of 80 to 100 kilometers and 33 to 46 laps.
How large is the Formula E series?The Formula E series is still growing. It started with 11 races in 2014, and the number of races, drivers and teams has increased each year. The season runs from around November until July.
