Porsche presents its “Road to Formula E” as an animation
In just a few days, the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team will enter its maiden season. At the Diriyah E-Prix, the squad will contest the first two races of the 2019/2020 ABB FIA Formula E Championship in Saudi Arabia on 22 and 23 November 2019.
This sees the works team end its “Road to Formula E”. Porsche has summarised the journey to the destination – from the official announcement of the Formula E entry to the first two races – in an infographic series. The animation, lasting around two minutes, follows the Formula E project in detail and is now available in the News-room.
Fritz Enzinger (Vice President Porsche Motorsport and Group Motorsport Volkswagen AG): “It’s finally time: the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team enters its maiden season of the first fully electric street racing series in the world. We have focussed a great deal of attention on preparing for this moment over the past one and a half years, have driven the Porsche Formula E project together and thereby made a mark in pioneering motorsport activities. In no other race series are there as many manufacturers represented as in Formula E. Therefore, we are expecting the competition to be tough and the races to be super exciting for our fans. As a team, we are well prepared and are optimistic heading into our maiden season, in which we will have a lot to learn.”
In the latest “Inside E” podcast, Alberto Longo talks about the unusual inception and rapid growth of the world’s first electric racing series, about Porsche’s strong performance with a podium result in Rome recently and why doubleheader events are the best solution for everyone during a global pandemic.
The first podium of the season for the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team: In the No. 99 Porsche 99X Electric, Pascal Wehrlein (GER) claimed third place at the Rome E-Prix on Sunday after a gripping race against tough opposition. His teammate André Lotterer (GER) finished the fourth round of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship contested in the Italian capital in position 15.
