Rome E-Prix: everything you need to know
The Rome E-Prix will be back in Rome on 15-16 July 2023. This year, as already in 2022, there will be two races in Rome, two E-prix of Formula E. Again, the ancient streets of Rome will welcome the world’s fastest electric cars.
Formula E remains a new concept in the world of motorsport but it has attracted big money sponsors and some of the hottest racing talent on the planet since its inception in 2014. Here’s what to expect when the race comes to the Eternal City.
What is Formula E?
Formula E is a class of motorsport only using electric-powered cars. The Championship is now in its nineth season, having started in Beijing in 2014. Races all take place on temporary city-center circuits, encapsulating some of the most impressive sites in the world – not least in Rome.
The 16 races scheduled for the 2023 season will see the debut of the third-generation race car as a major innovation. These cars will be smaller, more powerful, and lighter, resulting in improved performance. The engine power will increase by 25%, reaching 350 kW in qualifying and in Attack Mode, enabling speeds exceeding 300 km/h.
This year there will be an important regulatory change: the races will no longer be time-based (45 minutes plus one lap), but will instead return to having a set number of laps, similar to Formula 1.
