Formula E is set to make history by hosting the first race ever held on the streets of New York, but before it does, it’s giving fans a preview of what the temporary circuit will have to offer.
FE tweeted a video Monday that showed fans what a flying lap will look like around the 1.21-mile track in Brooklyn. Because cars won’t take to the track until July 15, the lap was completed on a simulator, though that’s fitting, as FE’s innovative nature is the reason New York wanted to host the ePrix.
If Ellen Degeneres decides to take FE up on its offer to drive its Spark-Renault SRT_01E show car, she certainly would have her hands full. Like most of the circuits the series races on, the New York City ePrix track is lined with unforgiving walls on nearly every corner — plus the middle sector looks extremely technical.
