State of Sustainable Racing 2012 Case Study
The Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile is the governing body for world motor sport and the federation of the world’s leading motoring organizations. Founded in 1904, with headquarters in Paris, the FIA is a non-profit making association. It brings together 227 national motoring and sporting organizations from 132 countries on five continents. Its member clubs represent millions of motorists and their families.
The FIA is now finalizing the Technical Terms and Conditions that will form the basis of a new “Call for Expressions of Interest” for tenders to hold the world’s first Formula E championship for electric race cars.
This Call for Expressions of Interest will be issued to identify and shortlist (at the latest in April 2012) those manufacturers that are in a position to commit to take part in the 2013 FIA Formula E Championship, either directly or/and via teams. Each manufacturer would be requested to produce a minimum number of cars so as to guarantee a minimum field, and a “balance of performance” system would be put in place in order to guarantee the sporting interest of the Championship.
