“Road to Formula E”: Countdown to the start in the all-electric race series
Preparations continue apace for Porsche’s first race in Formula E: since officially announcing a works entry in the 2019/2020 ABB FIA Formula E world championship in April 2018, the sports car manufacturer has already hit a number of key milestones – with more to follow.
Porsche is launching a series of infographics to document the path to the all-electric race series: the “Road to Formula E”. Available in the Porsche Newsroom, this will be updated with interesting information from month to month as the Season 6 race debut in December of this year draws closer.
Fritz Enzinger (Vice President Porsche Motorsport): “When the Porsche Board of Management made the decision to enter Formula E in 2019/2020, we started to chart our course. When I look back over recent months, I am very proud of what we have achieved within the team. We have successfully completed the first steps: the first test phase for the Porsche powertrain on the test bench, the announcement of Neel Jani as the first driver, the construction of the Porsche Formula E car, rolling this out on the test track in Weissach and completing more than 1,000 kilometres of testing at “Circuit Calafat” in Spain. We still have plenty to do before the works entry in Formula E. We are confident that we are on the right track.”
The Porsche GT Team will line up on the grid at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with race cars in special liveries.
