Formula E Racers to Electro-Whine Around Battersea Park This Summer

By Gary Cutlack on at

Wandsworth Council members have approved plans to allow racing cars to smash around Battersea Park, with the London ePrix set for go-go-go this June.

The race will see a batch of Spark-Renault SRT_01E cars competing beside the Thames, with the last two races of the Formula E seasons -- rounds 10 and 11 of the calendar -- taking place on June 27 and 28. Kids from local schools will also trundle around for the amusement of attendees, with a batch of self-assembled electric kit cars taking to the park track too. [FIA]
