Brooklyn to host Formula E race in summer 2017

PanARMENIAN.Net - Formula E is going to race in Brooklyn next summer. The all-electric series will wrap up its third season with races on back-to-back days in July of 2017. Series CEO Alejandro Agag made the announcement on Wednesday, September 21 alongside city officials at the Brooklyn Cruise Ship Terminal in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, where the race will take place. Exact dates have yet to be determined, Engadget says.

“Today is one of the biggest days for Formula E,” Agag said. “Many people say that climate change doesn’t exist, or that it is not an immediate worry. We started Formula E because we thought we could do something to help from our little corner of motorsport. Today, the race in New York is a little step in that direction.”

Half of the 1.21-mile track will loop around the parking lot for the Cruise Ship Terminal, and the other half — two straightaways and a hairpin turn — will run the length of the adjacent Pier 11 building. The track has 13 turns in total, and offers a view of the Statue of Liberty, Governor’s Island, and the south tip of Manhattan.
