Electric avenues

Hong Kong will host its first motor racing event in over 30 years when Formula E cars zoom around the city on 8-9 October.

Formula E is an FIA championship and the world’s first fully-electric race, which means you can leave the earplugs at home.

The race will cover a circuit of 2-kilometres around the Central Harbourfront, passing IFC, Hong Kong Observatory Deck, Star Ferry Pier and City Hall.

With 40,000 spectators expected to attend the event, the only thing moving quickly around the harbourfront will be the Formula E cars.

Before the race, visitors can take in the “Battle of Victors” boxing event, watch celebrities race each other in full-electric sedan cars and stare at a procession of super cars on 8 October.

The event on 9 October starts around noon.
