As electric cars are inevitably our future, it's of no surprise that there is a league dedicated to them as well. Already, Formula E will be launching a self-driving car racing series, aptly named ROBORACE.
However, technological innovations aren't all that Formula E is bringing to racing. Swiss officials are pushing to try and bring racing back to the country for the 2016/2017 season, which hasn't seen a home turf race since a tragic 1955 Le Mans accident claimed the lives of many spectators.
Ideally, the Swiss organizing body hoped to raise €10 million in order to have a round in Lugano, Switzerland take place during the current season; however, after realizing that the pre-race preparations would take longer than expected, officials have pushed back the date. , Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag said, "There has been an official communication. We needed to do quite a lot of work on the streets, so that meant it had to go through a public consultation."
But because there is now more time to prepare, Agag is confident that he will be able to bring racing back to Switzerland. The Swiss council already lifted the racing ban to allow Formula E. Now it's just a matter of sorting out logistics and funding.
