MSVR was delighted to be appointed as the sporting provider for the first ever FIA Formula E Visa London E-Prix, on 26-28 June 2015 in Battersea Park. 2016 saw London once again host a double-header round of this pioneering championship (2-3 July) and MSVR was proud to continue its association with the championship.
The ABB FIA Formula E Championship returns to London next summer after a brief hiatus from the capital city, with the 2020 event scheduled to take place on 25th and 26th July at the ExCeL Centre (subject to FIA homologation) and MSVR is thrilled to reprise its role of sporting provider as the championship moves to a new UK home.
Featuring all-electric racing and a fresh, modern approach Formula E enjoyed a successful inaugural season in 2014/15. The sixth season of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship kicked-off with the Diriyah E-Prix on 22/23 November, and will conclude in London after visiting no fewer than 10 other cities around the world. The championship has continued to grow year on year, now boasting 24 drivers across 12 teams. Both Mercedes-Benz and Porsche have made their debuts this season, bolstering the line-up of mainstream manufacturers on the grid and reinforcing the importance of the championship to the wider industry.
MSVR is excited to continue its successful partnership with Formula E, having been the sporting provider for both of the previous London rounds, held at Battersea Park in 2015 and 2016. The club’s responsibilities will include the provision and management of national event officials, technical scrutineers, medical and fire cover, plus pit and track marshals. MSVR will also organise provision of emergency and recovery vehicles.
The application process for marshals is now open. The success of the 2015 and 2016 events was due in no small part to the hard work of the many volunteer marshals and officials, and we look forward to a repeat of that next year.
Further details about the event will be released in the coming weeks and months. For enquiries relating to MSVR’s involvement in the London E-Prix, please email FormulaE@msvracing.co.uk.
