Prior hours of the ePrix of Hong Kong Formula E


While the rest of categories are embedded in its straight
end or directly have closed their doors, the Formula And live your great
. The category electric single seater FIA launches ‘Season
with the ePrix of Hong Kong, one of the many new tests that
the launch of the competition in the season 2016-17. This new ePrix will
open hostilities of a year that will feature twelve races, ten teams and
twenty pilots
, but at the technical level presents very few changes, at the margin
the new front spoiler that has a function, more aesthetic than aerodynamic.

The path manager to open the season is the Hong
Kong Central Harbourfront Circuit, a very short track of 1,860 meters of
length and barely has 10 curves
. The track is located in front of the
port of Victoria and in the line circuits which can be seen in the
category alternate slow corners, chicanes and angles of 90°. Will be especially
delicate in the first round the hairpin at the end to the start / finish straight
, point
we spent that time will be the best place to try any

The lack of technical developments and the results
seen during the pre-season invite us to think that Renault e.Dams is the great rival
to beat
. The Renault Z. E. 16 has been consistent and fast at Donington and the
team defends the title of the teams and riders with a Sébastien Buemi who
opens in Hong Kong his band of champion
. As a step in the ‘Season Two’,
the great rival of the team can be Audi Sport ABT, training in who wins
the presence of Audi, but that keeps the same ingredients with Lucas Di Grassi
as the tip of the spear


However, three teams have left samples of brilliance in the preseason. And in this aspect, without a doubt one of the
formations to follow is Techeetah
, a team born from the remnants of the Team
Aguri and that by the simple fact of having with the Renault Z. E. 16 is in the
shortlist of favorites. The training with Jean-Eric Vergne and Ma Qing Hua. A performance
more discrete has been shown DS Virgin with the duo formed by Sam Bird and Joseph
Mary ‘Pechito’ Lopez
, although the results of the ‘Season Two’ abalan. Dragon
Racing with the support of Faraday Future can be a ‘outsider’ luxury.

The duties do reach the ePrix of Hong Kong the two
manufacturers that have landed this summer in the Formula E. Jaguar for the
time seems to away from the head
within the meaning of the cronos marked by Adam
Carroll and Mitch Evans, dand the same way that it will be difficult to see Andretti fighting for the top positions despite having the support of BMW and a pair of pilots
level as it is formed by António Félix Da Costa and Robin Frijns,
, while the level of the Mahindra Racing is one of the great unknowns.

Ahead of the first ePrix of the season, the Formula E will be
escorted by two other categories electrical. The first will be
the e-Touring Car Challenge
, a competition that will be formed by sixteen
Volswagen e-Golf modified by RevoZport and they will be up to ten riders
asian and several invited VIPs will compete in the same path that uses the
category of single-seaters. For his part, and until you are ready all the software,
the expected Roborace will only make a display. Even so it will be interesting to see in
action this prototype electric and autonomous.
