Sunday’s Fully Electric ePrix Live from Brooklyn on FOX Broadcast Network
CHARLOTTE, NC – The FIA Formula E Championship arrives in Brooklyn this weekend for the inaugural Qualcomm New York City ePrix, with FOX Sports offering multi-platform coverage of the historic two-race event, highlighted by Sunday’s live coverage of Round 10 of the all-electric series on the FOX broadcast network, beginning at 1 PM ET.
The Formula E events, being contested at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, are the first major races to take place within New York City’s five boroughs in modern history. The 1.2-mile, 10-turn circuit winds through the waterfront neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn, and features stunning views of the iconic Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty.
Ralph Sheheen hosts FOX Sports pre-race coverage from Brooklyn, teaming with the Formula E broadcast team of Bob Varsha (host), Martin Haven (play-by-play), Dario Franchitti (analyst) and Nicki Shields (pits/interviewer).
“There is an extraordinary sense of excitement and anticipation for this inaugural event in New York City,” Varsha said. “After all, it’s the Big Apple, the financial, cultural, media and arts capital of the world! It’s a huge feather in the cap of Formula E that in just the third season of existence, they’ve been able to gain a foothold in a market where more established series have been unable to. Like Paris, Monaco, Mexico City and Hong Kong, the New York City leadership has embraced the concept of emissions-free racing entertainment, and I think the fans are going to like what they see.”
