Round 1 of Formula E: Accelerate took place last Thursday in a tightly contested battle on the virtual streets of New York City. After a close qualifying, Marius and Jaroslav drove strong races respectively, with Marius coming home with our first points in P6, which was later elevated to P5 after post-race penalty for a competitor.

Round 2 of Formula E: Accelerate will see the competition head to Hong Kong on Thursday February 4, with the remaining 4 races taking place over the coming weeks culminating with the series Grand Final on March 25.
