Mouser-Backed Formula E Team Readies for First-Ever Indoor/Outdoor Race in London
Molex, TTI, and AVX Join Mouser to Support All-Electric Racing
The Mouser Electronics-supported Formula E racing team will face a challenging road course through London’s Royal Docks at the London E-Prix on July 24 and 25. DRAGON / PENSKE AUTOSPORT team drivers Joel Eriksson and Sérgio Sette Câmara will race around — and for the first time ever, inside — the ExCeL London exhibition center. The race also marks the return of Formula E all-electric street racing to the U.K. capital after a five-year absence.
Mouser is partnering with the team throughout the 2020–21 ABB FIA Formula E Championship racing season, in collaboration with TTI, Inc. and valued suppliers Molex and AVX. This is the seventh-straight year that Mouser and Molex have sponsored Formula E racing.
The Formula E series features cars that are powered solely by electricity and represent a vision for the future of the motor sports industry, serving as a framework for research and development around zero-emission motoring. The Gen2 cars offer a huge step forward in electric vehicle racing technology, with maximum power of 250 kW and speeds up to 280 km/h. Racing is all about speed and endurance, and racing sponsorships are an innovative way for Mouser to communicate its performance-driven business model and promote the newest technologies from its manufacturer partners.
Fans can cast a vote for Eriksson and Sette Câmara in FANBOOST, which allows fans to play an active role in influencing the outcome of the race. FANBOOST gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite driver and award them an extra boost of power during the race. The five drivers with the most FANBOOST votes are awarded a significant burst of power, which they can deploy in a 5-second window during the second half of the race. FANBOOST voting for the London E-Prix opened July 21 and is available up to 15 minutes into the race.
After the weekend in London, the 2020–2021 season concludes with the two-race Berlin E-Prix, scheduled for August 14 and 15.
