The Curve WINTER 2018
The Curve WINTER 2018 MOTORSPORT A FRESH DOSE OF ENERGY For its fifth season, the Formula E electric street racing series will be making a pit stop at the oil capital of the world – showing how electric vehicles are the future. The flag will drop on the season’s first E-Prix in Riyadh, the capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and “the perfect setting for the next phase of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship,” according to Alejandro Agag, founder and CEO of the race series. Among the world’s best all-electric vehicles winding their way around Riyadh’s sleek skyscrapers and along the broad streets of the picturesque Ad Diriyah district this December will be the new Jaguar I-TYPE 3, Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s next-generation Formula E race car. Propelled by up to 335 horsepower from its cutting-edge battery pack, supplied by McLaren Applied Technology, the I-TYPE 3 promises to be Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s best model yet. The I-TYPE 3’s extra power, efficiency and range will have team drivers Nelson Piquet Jr. and Mitch Evans eyeing up the podium. The Riyadh race will be the first of 10 annual E-Prix to take place in the kingdom under a deal signed with the General Sports Authority and Saudi Arabian Motor Federation. It “offers the prospect of world-class racing on the streets of the capital for the first time in our history,” said His Royal Highness Prince Abdulaziz – and could perhaps inspire the car-loving locals to consider the merits of all-electric powered vehicles.
