In case you missed it, the Formula E season kicks off this weekend in Hong Kong. This is another new circuit for the series and runs round the streets of the former British colony. The circuit length is 1.86km which means an Olympic 1500 metre runner could get round it in about 4 minutes. I hope the electric racing cars will be a tad faster. Here's a link to the official HK e-Prix site: HK Formula E For those watching in the UK Channel 5 have coverage this year and the race is on at 8:30 on Sunday morning: FIA Formula E Live: Hong Kong - Channel 5 Here are the teams and drivers: DS Virgin - Sam Bird & Jose Maria Lopez NextEV NIO - Nelson Piquet jnr & Oliver Turvey Venturi Formula E - Stephane Sarrazin & Maro Engel Faraday Future Dragon Racing - Loic Duval & Jerome d'Ambrosio Renault e-DAMS - Nicolas Prost & Sebastien Buemi ABT Schaeffler Motor Sport - Daniel Abt & Lucas di Grassi Mahindra Racing Formula E Team - Felix Rosenqvist & Nick Heidfeld Panasonic Jaguar Racing - Mitch Evans & Adam Carroll Techeetah - Jean Eric Vergne & Ma Qing Hua MS Amlin Andretti - Robin Frijns & Antonio Felix da Costa So some new teams, well team names anyway, and some new drivers and drivers switching teams. Sebastien Buemi is defending his title. I'm sure Lucas di Grassi will be looking for some revenge for last season and Nelson Piquet jnr will be hoping not to revisit the nightmare that was the 2015-16 season after winning the title first time out. Next race isn't until November 12th in Marrakesh so sit back, turn up the volume and listen the the WHINE!
