Long Beach ePrix Electric Car Race to Offer Free Admission

The Long Beach Formula E ePrix will take place on April 4, 2015 and will be open for free admission.

Published: 24-Jul-2014

The inaugural Formula E race in Long Beach next year, featuring 20 electric-powered cars, will have free grandstand and general admission, organizers said Wednesday.

The race will be run by the Grand Prix Assn. of Long Beach, the same group that runs the venerable Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach that features cars in the Verizon IndyCar Series racing on the city's seaside streets.

Formula E's race is scheduled for April 4, two weeks before the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, and Formula E will use a 1.6-mile, seven-turn portion of the same course used in the IndyCar race.
