Five U.S. cities are on the short list for a 2018 Formula E race, including Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Austin, reports the Austin-American Statesman. With electric race cars that are vastly quieter than the pit-o’-debauchery that is Sixth Street, the group pushing for the race date says they can act fast to make it…
Autonomous car racing is real and happening soon. From a technological standpoint it’s all quite impressive, but there’s one big problem: it sounds boring as all shit to watch. How do you make autonomous racing interesting? The answer is pretty clear: they need to blow each other up.
Those in attendance at the Formula E Buenos Aires ePrix witnessed history yesterday. Roborace debuted what’s being billed as the first competitive race between self-driving cars on a professional Formula E track. How’d it go? Great! Or, it was at least great for the winning car.
Meet the new Spark SRT05e, the concept for the next generation Formula E car set to debut in 2018. It looks badass, it’s safer than the current car and best of all, it incorporates a bigger battery to kill off the confusing, goofy mid-race car swaps once and for all. Formula E may finally be worth watching.
One of the gimmicks Formula E uses to try getting fans more involved is Fanboost: fans vote for their favorites to give them a boost in-race. During the series’ first-ever eRace that pit Formula E pros against professional gamers, however, the controversial gimmick had perhaps its biggest failure yet.
For a lot of people, riding in a car that has even partial control over its actions is difficult enough in slow traffic—just ask the 70-year-old lady who thoroughly freaked out while using Tesla’s Autopilot. But letting a race car take full control? That’s a whole new level of “No, thanks.”

Formula E may have be struggling to win fans’ love and attention, but the series’ latest stunt shows that they speak the universal automotive language of love: donuts. Specifically, polar ice cap donuts.
Despite a series of recent announcements of new works teams in Formula E, the series didn’t do so great in its first year. It posted a loss of $68.4 million for its inaugural 2014-2015 season, per Sports Business Daily. Ouch!
Formula E is a recent addition to the world’s motorsports scene, an electric counterpart to the gas-guzzling established series. It does a lot right, but still nobody really seems to know what it is, what’s it’s up to, or why it’s important. Here are three things the series could do to right itself and no, they’re not…
Roborace, the new autonomous racing series set to run alongside Formula E, has just released the final design for its unbelievably cool race car designed by the guy who created the Tron: Legacy Light Cycle, and it’s both a beautiful design achievement and an engineering breakthrough.
Faraday Future, the mysterious company that gave us a non-functional Le Mans prototype wannabe concept instead of a real car months ago, finally found a functional motor vehicle to put its name on: Dragon Racing’s FIA Formula E Championship racer.

Besides a bit of YouTube fame, it’s hard to say why stuntman Damien Walters challenged himself to perform a daring backflip over a speeding Formula E race car—which he couldn’t actually see coming. It’s a stunt more impressive than anything you’ll see in a Hollywood movie because there are no wires, and no computer…
