Venturi excited for Marrakesh ePrix 2016


“We are looking forward to the race in Marrakesh. It’s always exciting to discover a new place, a new challenge for cars, drivers and our team. We had a good start in Hong-Kong with the first round of the season . Stéphane (Sarrazin) And Maro (Engel) were both in the points. It gives us a lot of confidence to have achieved that in terms of reliability and performance. Now we have to confirm with steady results. ”
said Delphine Biscaye , Venturi’s team manager.

This Saturday, the 20 drivers will race on the longest track of the season (2.9 km and 33 laps). The race will start at 4pm (local time) on the international circuit Moulay El Hassan (usually used by the World Touring Car Championship WTCC).

It’s also going to be a really important race for the Formula-E series in terms of showcasing sustainable mobility. The race takes place during the COP 22 Summit (November 7 to 18), the United Nations annual conference on climate change. Some of the world’s pre-eminent climatologist, scientist, politician, industry leaders and heads of state will be in attendance including Prince Albert of Monaco.

Formula-E is a partner of the COP 22.

Jean Todt, President of the FIA, said: “Formula E is a great example of an FIA championship among the Federation’s two main pillars – sport s and mobility. We are delighted that Formula E has decided to become a partner of COP22 on the occasion of the first edition of the Marrakesh ePrix. As part of the FIA mission to promote clean transport systems available to all, we are looking to encourage the development and adoption of sustainable technologies. Formula E is a fantastic laboratory that will enable the development of ‘clean technologies for all’.”

Venturi owner Gildo Pastor said: “Formula E is about racing but also about developing the most advanced technologies in order to bring to the market the best sustainable mobility solutions for the future of the planet. We compete to show our skill but first of all to be efficient for future generations.”
