The New York ePrix will be the first FIA-sanctioned motorsports event to take place in any of the five boroughs of New York City in modern history. The 1.95-kilometer circuit features 10 turns, winding through the waterfront neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn, and will feature stunning views of the iconic Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty.

“As the first race ever in the streets of New York, we are making racing history. It’s amazing how far Formula E has come in two and a half years. For me, being a part of it since day one, it has been great to watch it grow,” said Andretti Formula E founder Michael Andretti. 

 

“We are really excited about getting to New York. It’s our home race and I’m really hoping we can put on a show and have a shot at winning the race. That’s our goal.”

“For the MS Amlin Andretti Formula E team, the race here in New York City brings us the first chance to race on home soil and in front of the American public since the Long Beach ePrix in Season 2. After the disappointment of the Berlin races, our engineering team has continued to work hard and push the performance of the ATEC-02 and we are hoping that home field advantage here in NYC will bode well for the team. We are looking forward to seeing all of our home fans and introducing NYC to the excitement of Formula E.”
– Roger Griffiths, Co-Team Principal
