Formula E Racing Goes Mainstream?

The Formula E series for Electric Vehicles (EVs) has been around since 2014. There have been over 50 races so far in 20 cities, across five continents, and 13 major global car manufacturers have participated. The last season had over 300 Million TV viewers and over 500,000 watched the races in person.

But starting in 2020 some additional big car making names will be joining the electric racing championship…BMW, Mercedes and the biggest name in EVs at the moment Tesla.

What is cool about Formula E racing is that they race on the streets of major world cities the 2019-20 season includes: Diriya, Santiago, Mexico City, Marrakesh, Sanya, Rome, Paris, Seoul, Jakarta, Berlin, New York City, and London.

Previous cities hosting Formula E races: Monaco, Zurich, Beijing, Bern, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, Long Beach, Miami, Montreal, Moscow, Punta del Este and Putrajaya.

The Formula E series brings the excitement of racing and clean energy to people, right where they live and work thus exposing even many non-racing fans to the sport. The Formula E series also drives home the point that EVs can and will soon replace even the highest performance combustion powered vehicles and they are demonstrating this fact in some of the very cities most adversely being affected by air pollution and climate change.

Also a positive sign of mainstream EV adoption is that fact that you can now wager on the winner of the Formula E  races at WINK.org, which is powered by the TRON (TRX) blockchain.
