Formula E is a new electric car racing series starting in 2014 with pure electric cars. All courses are city courses with first races being held in prominent cities like Rio de Janeiro and Rome.
If we could bring a race to any of our cities, that could increase customer awareness of EVs and could be beneficial to NZ economy as a whole.
Currently Auckland is supporting V8 supercars with substantial amount of money. Putting just that amount to an international event like Formula E, would be a much better use of it.
