MONACO (30 November 2018)– In only two weeks, on December 15, the first race of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship will be held in Saudi Arabia, in the streets of Ad Diriyah. Before discovering this season full of new features, Formula E fans have a great reason to be happy: the Monaco E-Prix, one the masterpiece of the season, is back in the calendar like each odd-numbered years. The tickets are already available. Grab your tickets before December 31 and get a price of only 20€ for the presale of an adult grandstand ticket.
For the third edition of the Monaco E-Prix, the Allianz E-Village will be located on the Quai Antoine 1er. In addition of the number of stands dedicated to food and entertainment, the Allianz E-Village gives the opportunity to get up close with the latest features and innovations of the car manufacturers. Test your skill in the Gaming Zone on one of our simulators. The place where you can meet your heroes during the traditional autograph session.
But the major innovation is on track. The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY, whose first race will be held next month, is the world’s first all-electric production based international race series. On stage, the first battery all electric car of the Jaguar range, the I-Pace SV. Modified for racing, they will for victory during meetings made up of free practice, qualifying and 30 minutes’ race before the start of the E-Prix.
While the championship might be only five years old, the technology racing around the circuit is ever-changing. Season 5 will see 22 Gen2 cars racing around the track in anger for the very first time. The Batmobile-esque all-electric racer has double the energy storage capacity of the Gen1 car, meaning it can complete a whole race, so no more mid-race car swaps. With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h. Greater speeds, more action on track and with just one car per driver – there’s everything to lose.
No more lap limits – we’re moving to timed races. With each round running to a strict limit of 45-minutes plus one lap to reach the chequered flag.
The new season begins in two weeks in Middle-East before moving to Marrakesh, Santiago, Mexico, Hong Kong, and China in Sanya. The European tour will be back in the streets of Rome, Paris, and Berlin.
Then Formula E will come back in Switzerland, but in Bern, and the season will finish up with a double-header in New York City, on July 13 and 14, where a new champion will be crowned.
In a world first for motorsport, drivers will be able to access a higher power mode in addition to FANBOOST, by passing through an activation zone marked out and visible on the circuit for fans at the track and those watching on TV. When a driver passes through the activation zone, they will be able to access 225kW of power – as opposed to the standard 200kW available during the race. Signalling the power hike is the job of the new illuminated FIA halo head protection device, which will show different colours for each of the two power modes.
After the announcement that HWA will be 11th team to join the grid, there will be a total of 22 cars on the start line of the first race of Season 5. With BMW becoming a full manufacturer team, the German marque will join the likes of Audi, DS, Jaguar, NIO, Penske, Nissan (which takes the place of sister marque Renault) and Venturi as manufacturers in the series. With a new season and new teams out there, we say hello to Felipe Massa (Venturi Formula E Team), Stoffel Vandoorne (HWA RACELAB), Pascal Wehrlein (Mahindra Racing), Alex Sims (BMW i Andretti Motorsport) and Garry Paffett (HWA RACELAB) as they make their debut in the series. Join us, it’s going to be big!
