Formula E, the first all-electric single-seater racing series, approved by the FIA, will reportedly feature as many as ten street tracks in the inaugural edition of the championship - one confirmed location is Rio de Janeiro. Now, a second important city has been added - the Italian capital city, Rome.
A race around this truly historic city will be an extremely interesting one, and if once it would not have been possible to organize such a race through its twisty, narrow streets, full of crumbly old buildings. Also, since EVs are very quiet and clean, nobody will be able to make negative comments against the event, as there simply are no arguments.

We are looking forward to seeing which cities will be added to the list, though we honestly hope these cities will be well-known locations, with famous landmarks, to give the series that extra shove it needs in its first season, as not only the racing action will attract the ‘fans’, but also the historic locations, so two birds will be struck with one stone - people will get to see the historic sites, as well as enjoy the racing, and if it’s good, the following year, perhaps it will be just the racing that they will come to watch.
