Are you looking forward to the start of the electric vehicle racing?

If so, you will be happy to learn that tickets can now be purchased for the first ever race of the electric FIA Formula E (FE) Championship to be held next month in Beijing on Saturday, September 13.

FE said race day tickets, all of which offer reserved grandstand seating, can be obtained from one of three outlets.

Local fans can use the ShuiniaoTicket platform, while spectators outside of China can visit the official Formula E Web site or global ticketing company Ticketmaster.

The Beijing ePrix will see the 10 teams and 20 drivers compete on a temporary street circuit around the iconic Olympic ‘Bird’s Nest’ Stadium; organizers said they are offering two pricing options – Gold and Platinum priced at 488 RMB and 688 RMB (80 and 112 USD respectively), dependent on the view of the track. Children under five will have free entry to the Beijing ePrix – as with all Formula E races (if accompanied by an adult) – with Beijing also having a limited amount of free trackside access.

Tickets can also be brought at the track the day of the event.

Formula E explained it is the FIA’s new fully-electric single-seater championship designed to appeal to a new generation of motorsport fans, whilst accelerating the interest in electric vehicles and promoting sustainability.

All races will be held exclusively on city-centre circuits – with races in China, Malaysia, Uruguay, Argentina, US, Monaco, Germany and the UK. Cars competing are capable of speeds in excess of 150 mph The championship’s 10 teams feature some of the leading international names in motorsport including Alain Prost and Michael Andretti, along with high-profile environmental supporters such as Sir Richard Branson.
