Electric Racing Series Takes To The Streets Of Putrajaya
It's been over two months since the inaugural FIA Formula E Championship kicked off with its first race in Beijing. And after an extended break, the action got back under way this weekend with the second race in Putrajaya, Malaysia.
NASCAR, take note: this is one fun idea. FIA Formula E Championship organizers are letting the general public vote for their favorite racer in the first-ever electric-vehicle racing circuit. And the so-called FanBoost feature is far more than a popularity contest.
"There are no points for second place" may be a long-repeated mantra among anyone involved in competitive racing (or Top Gun fanatics, for that matter), but the folks of Putrajaya, Malaysia, seem to be OK with that position. City leaders recently feted an official agreement for Putrajaya to host the second-ever Formula E race, which will pit super-fast electric vehicles against each other on city streets.
