Got a recent press release from the City of Montreal that they’ll be hosting a formula electric race next summer, and not just any race but the FIA Formula E Championship. The eprix Montréal Race is slated for July 29 and 30, 2017.
No real details yet, other than the course location, which I’m quoting directly from the press release:
“The urban race course will be set up around the installations at Société Radio-Canada, one of the event's collaborators. The race will start in an eastbound direction along boulevard René-Lévesque, between rue Panet and rue Plessis, will include 14 curves over 2.75 km, and at specific points along the course, drivers will reach top speeds of 265 km/h.”
Could be interesting and certainly a chance to get a look at some serious electric cars.
