Formula-E, Electric Racing for the Future - /SHAKEDOWN
When IndyCar's Andretti Autosport announced itself as a team entry in the
new FIA Formula E Championship launching in 2014, it's time for Leo Parente
and ShakeDown to bring you up to speed on this global open-wheel racing
series that will run on full-electric power. 10 races, 10 teams, 2 drivers
per team, 4 cars - because rather than change tires or swap batteries, the
2 mandatory pitstops in each 1-hour race will see drivers swapping cars to
keep racing [the other car recharges between stops]. Then, there is the RC
car sound vs 'real engines'!
