Chinese team joins 2014 electric racing circuit
PARIS (AP) - Team China Racing is the second team to sign up for next year’s environmentally friendly Formula E tour, which will feature zero-emission cars racing in 10 cities around the world.
China Racing was officially proposed to motor sport’s governing body as one of the 10 teams taking part. British-based Drayson Racing was the first team to sign up, while Rio de Janeiro and Rome are the first two cities to commit to hosting a race.
“The Formula E championship with single-seater cars is a FIA championship of the future. The future is not so far away,” the president of auto racing’s governing body, Jean Todt, said during a presentation in Paris on Wednesday. “In a few days we will have the opportunity of presenting the calendar, and I am sure we will have some nice surprises.”
