World First! Formula E Car Visits Arctic Ice Cap #ProjectIce

Description

The world’s only fully electric racing series has once again broken new ground by running its car on the Arctic ice cap.

With the earth experiencing the warmest year on record, the amount of sea ice breaking away from the Arctic has reached historic new levels. To raise awareness of this crucial and pressing issue, Formula E joined forces with Julius Baer, Visa, DHL, Schaeffler, The Prince Albert Foundation II and Mumm to bring this spectacular event to life. The zero-emission racer was driven on the ice cap by adventurous race-winning Formula E driver, Lucas di Grassi.

The Brazilian, who will be seeking to go one better than his runner-up position in the season two championship when the series returns with the HKT Hong Kong ePrix on October 9, performed a series of jaw-dropping runs on the ice cap, inside the Arctic circle in the north of Greenland.
