Motorsport fans who attend London’s 2022 E-Prix will be treated to an electrifying pre-race show from chart topper, Jax Jones as well as access to the Allianz E-Village where they will also see performances from Nina Nesbitt and Gracey. There will also the opportunity to compete on racing simulators in the Gaming Arena, where prizes are up for grabs. But how did the concept of E-Prix come about?
The idea for an all-electric street racing series started out as nothing more than a collection of notes on a napkin.
On the evening of March 3, 2011, FIA President Jean Todt and Spanish businessman, Formula E Chairman Alejandro Agag, met in a Paris restaurant and gathered their thoughts in just a few words on what would become the world's first all-electric international single-seater championship.
Formula E’s founding mission was for its race through the streets of the most iconic cities in the world - with a grid full of the best racing drivers and teams around - to show just what sustainable mobility was capable of, driving electric vehicles to the fore in the race for a better, cleaner future.
Since making its debut in the grounds of the Olympic Park in Beijing in 2014, Formula E has grown into a global entertainment brand with motorsport at its heart. Now, with 12 teams and 24 drivers on the grid, the championship has become a destination for the world's best motorsport teams and racing talent.
