The world’s first all electric racing series comes to Monaco next weekend. 20 cars and drivers from the FIA Formula E series will take part in the inaugural Monaco ePrix on a shortened version of the legendary Monaco Grand Prix circuit featuring such infamous corners as Tabac, Rascasse and the Swimming Pool. The event forms part of the 2014/2015 Formula E championship, which aims to bring electric power to the forefront of motorsport. The series is already causing a great deal of excitement in the motor racing world. Formula 1 already makes extensive use of electric power and perhaps it is only a matter of time before the pinnacle of motorsport also relies totally on electric power! Monaco will be the seventh race of a total of ten, races having already taken place in such places as Beijing, Miami and Buenos Aires. The drivers must be incredibly excited at the thought of getting to drive their incredible electric machines capable of speeds in excess of 220kmh on the famous Monaco street circuit!
The 2015 Monaco ePrix takes place on Saturday 9 May 2015
