Formula E isn’t soccer related at all but the boys are in the middle of a mixxy few weeks so the range is on full display. Rox and Ken discuss their past weeks, and talk some soccer along the way.

Formula E

Formula E, officially the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, is a single-seater electric car racing championship. The series was created in Paris in 2011 by FIA president Jean Todt and Spanish businessman Alejandro Agag, who is also the current chairman of Formula E Holdings.

The first championship race was held in September 2014 in Beijing. The series has had FIA world championship status since 2020.

The proposal for a city-based, single-seater electric car motor racing championship was conceived by Jean Todt, president of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), and presented to politicians Alejandro Agag and Antonio Tajani at a dinner in a small Italian restaurant in the French capital Paris on 3 March 2011.

Tajani focused on electrifying the automobile industry, lowering carbon dioxide emissions and introducing hybrid and electric systems. After discussing the FIA opening up a tender to organize the series, Agag supported Todt’s proposal.

Formula E has been an FIA World Championship since the 2020-21 season, making it the first single-seater racing series outside of Formula One to receive world championship status.
