2019 HKT Hong Kong E-Prix

March 6, 2019 Sports No Comments Email Email

The 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship enters an exciting era in 2019 with the debut of the next generation car (Gen2) racing in some of the world’s most recognizable and progressive cities, including Hong Kong.

One of only three races taking place in Asia, the 2019 HKT Hong Kong E-Prix, scheduled as round five of this season, will be held on March 10, 2019. The series will see 11 teams and 22 drivers racing along the iconic Hong Kong Harbourfront on a 1.86 kilometer track, which consists of 10 turns with two hairpins.

The highlight of the event, the revolutionary Gen2 car, boasts a distinctive design and demonstrates stepped-up performance, with almost double the usual energy storage capacity. This allows the drivers to complete the full race distance at high speed without a mid-race car swap, creating more excitement on the track than ever before.

“Attack Mode” is another on-track innovation that will impress speed lovers. Activated via special zones, drivers will be able to access 225 kW power in Attack Mode, with spectators able to identify which drivers are in the mode through the LED Halos on the vehicles.

“We’re thrilled to have some of the world’s best drivers in action in one of the world’s electrifying cities,” said HKTB US Director Bill Flora. “The impressive line-up and ground-breaking innovations offer a thrilling and diverse experiences to visitors and strengthens Hong Kong’s status as Asia’s events capital.”

Visitors can also look forward to an in-depth exploration of the enhanced Allianz E-Village, with installations such as Formula E simulators for fans to experience a drive around the virtual Central Harbourfront track. The world’s first interactive race – Ghost Racing – will allow fans to race against real drivers in actual races live in the Gaming Arena.

The Formula E Tram is another new innovation this year. On March 8-9, selected fans will have the chance to get up close and personal with Formula E drivers making a special appearance onboard the tram, the city’s most iconic means of transportation, creating some unique photo moments.
