FIA Formula E Championship Race Coming to Downtown Miami on March 14, 2015
How exciting! On March 14, 2015, Formula E race cars will be racing through the streets of Downtown Miami. The 2014/2015 FIA Formula E Championship will be contested over 10 rounds taking place on city-centre circuits around the world. Miami was chosen as one of those cities and will have electric race cars racing down Biscayne Boulevard. A formal announcement will be made this upcoming Monday, October 20, 2014.
For those who have lived in Miami long enough to remember, you may recall that, up until 1995, Champ Car (formerly known as CART) race cars raced on a speedway track located at Bicentennial Park (currently known as Museum Park) in Downtown Miami. In 1996, the race was moved to the newly opened $70M Homestead-Miami Speedway track located about an hour south of Downtown Miami in Homestead, Florida. The return of race car driving to Downtown Miami, in my opinion, is beyond exciting. As one might guess, the various condos in Downtown Miami situated along Biscayne Boulevard will provide a front row seat to all the action. Start your engines!
