How im­por­tant is a Lon­don For­mula E race?

Mike Con­way Ven­turi driver

“If they can’t con­tinue it in Lon­don it would be a shame. We go to the big cap­i­tals. We’d love Bat­tersea to stay, with it be­ing a dou­ble-header you’ve got more chance of great rac­ing and more ex­po­sure for the se­ries. It max­imises the po­ten­tial for peo­ple com­ing to see what FE’S about.”

Oliver Tur­vey NEXTEV TCR driver

“It’s a spe­cial place to race and it’s nice to be able to race in front of Bri­tish fans and have your fam­ily and friends come. It’s great to race all over the world and I en­joy that but to race in Lon­don is re­ally im­por­tant for the cham­pi­onship.”

Alex Tai DS Vir­gin team prin­ci­pal

“It’s su­per im­por­tant to us as a Bri­tish team and for Vir­gin as a brand. What we know is For­mula E is a re­ally ex­cit­ing se­ries, it’s got an aw­ful lot of at­trac­tive­ness, but we need to build that brand. Peo­ple need to know the Lon­don race is go­ing to hap­pen and when. Lon­don is one of the im­por­tant des­ti­na­tions we need to keep re­peat­ing.”
