32 Days to Launch: Formula-E Holds Race Simulation at Donington Park
Earlier today, Formula-E held 2 mass simulations of an e-Prix. Every driver, car, team, official, broadcast team, IT guy, and track staffer was on hand to simulate a race. No crowds, this time.
Lots of things went wrong. Which was exactly what everyone wanted.
These tests will help prepare Formula-E for the nitty gritty of the upcoming inaugural season. Alejandro Agag, the CEO of Formula-E put it best:
“Putting on a major sporting event in the heart of cities around the world is a massive undertaking and requires careful preparation. We want the Formula E Beijing ePrix to a fantastic spectacle, which is why we’re leaving nothing to chance by rigorously testing all the systems beforehand. Overall we’re very pleased with how things went.”
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a major sport launch a new series. We’re being reminded of how much work and planning goes into these events.Click here for reuse options!
