Nueva York acogerá un gran premio de Fórmula E en su tercera temporada

An old desire of the Formula 1, and Ecclestone, your employer, during these past few years has been to bring the World to New York. See the cars plying the streets of the Big Apple, to project on television stations all over the planet in your sport with the showroom most recognizable in the world. In fact, New Jersey was near becoming in 2013 in stop the world championship. That dream will be possible, but the cars that will travel on the asphalt new yorker, not they, because the city will host a circuit, yes, but Formula E, the increased competition of single-seaters with electric motor, which celebrates its third season.

The circuit will host a test with two rounds, the 29 and the 30 of July, and will consist of a path of 1.947 feet with a distant skyline of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty in the background. 13 laps around a port area next to the Brooklyn cruise terminal, located in the neighborhood of Red Hook. The ad, which introduced the grand prix as the first test of single-seaters within the limits of New York, could be interpreted as a knock on effect for a competition that was born with strength, but has seen how his potential has been declining. In addition, with the arrival of hybrid engines to Formula 1, he lost the exclusivity of its claim to technological, referred to also as a laboratory of innovation for this green energy. The electric motor of a single-seater of the F-1 provides 180 horsepower which coupled with the combustion with a total of 900. The cars of Formula E have a power output of 270 horses. The corporation behind the series is presided over by Alejandro Agag, a member of the PP between 1999 and 2000, who defended in the press conference that the race in new york will be a moment of “historic” for the sport of motor.




New York joins in the calendar to other big cities like Hong Kong, Marrakech, Buenos Aires, Monaco, Paris, or Montreal. In total they run 12 tests (two still to be appointed), the first on October 9 in Hong Kong. Ten teams and 20 drivers will fight for the crown, which last year won the expiloto of Formula 1 Sebastien Buemi. In the inaugural season, the series featured three spaniards, Jaime Alguesuari, former Toro Rosso, Oriol Served, regular IndyCar, and Antonio García, who obtained good results in resistance. This year shall be old acquaintances of the F-1 as the brazilian Nelson Piquet, who was a team-mate of Fernando Alonso in the Renault, or the German Nick Heidfeld.
