THE FUTURE OF MOTORSPORT
Formula X is an off-road electric racing series designed to provide manufacturers a sandbox to develop electric and off-road vehicle technology, and serves as a series to replace soon to be illegal and illogical petrol derived racing series.
Formula X uses similar technical and sporting regulations to Formula E, following the success of the series over the past 5 years, seeing teams from Porsche, Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and Nissan, among others, abandoning petrol derived series in favour of electric vehicle racing. A new series is needed therefore, given the popularity among both spectators and manufacturers, for electric racing.
