Fancy your chances as a race track layout designer? Mahindra Formula E Team is giving the creative opportunity to get sketching and create a suitable circuit that might be used as a future ePrix in New Delhi, India! Fans should submit their ideas on Facebook and Twitter in response to Team Principle Dilbagh Gill.
Following the success of Mahindra Racing’s recent visit to India during which the M2Electro Formula E car took to the track for some laps of the Buddh International Circuit, the dream of a home race for the team may be a reality in the future.Mahindra Racing has received a letter of intent from the Delhi Government pledging their support for an ePrix in the city of New Delhi and the race is on to design a challenging and exciting circuit.
Dilbagh Gill, Team Principal of Mahindra Racing Formula E Team, said:
“We are looking for a track that is approximately two to three kilometers long, with 8 to 12 turns and space for a pit lane and our garages. We are inviting fans to share their ideas on Facebook and Twitter. It can be a sketch, a map, a photo or simply a piece of writing, but we want to accelerate this project and get the race to India. We have also reserved some exciting prizes for our favourite ideas, so I am looking forward to see what all the Mahindra Racing fans out there come up with.”
Ali Russell, Director of Media and Communications at Formula E, said:
“Formula E is a truly global sport with races spread across four continents. As a new racing series, Formula E acts as a platform to promote sustainable mobility and alternative energy solutions. India is a perfect example of an important emerging market that would raise the profile and production of electric vehicles.”
