This is Formula E

Busy week end of Motosport with the debut of Formula E on Saturday.  

I'm sure many will be as ambivalent and skeptical as we are at Axis about Formula E,

The rollout has not been easy and some demonstrations have been, to be kind, less than spectacular.  

It was probably a good PR move to choose Beijing, on of the world's most polluted cities as the first venue and indeed    in this latest clip promoting UK's ITV's broadcast  there is much talk about "green".   we're just not totally sure which green they are referring to.

Running on tight city tracks will help mask any speed deficiency and the gimmicky fan voted speed boost is presumably designed to attract the TV talent show audience.

But, we'll take a look.  US Broadcast live on Fox Sports 1 at 3:30 pm

  1. My biggest beef with this series is the lack of battery swapping. Swapping cars mid race seems cheesy, plus the expense of having 2 cars per driver, setting both up etc.. I really think they missed the boat not developing this tech prior to the series launch. It would be great technology that could translate into road cars.

    Once they give more details on the Miami event, I am going to buy tickets and take a look. I will be sure to DVR the race this weekend and watch back. If the advertising is anything like US F1, once you skip the commercials the coverage is only about 30 minutes long.

    Oh and the fan voted speed boost is stupid.
