Bidding begins for venues interested in hosting races from the Air Race E series, scheduled for 2022

Air Race E, the global air racing series, has announced the official bidding process for venues interested in hosting races during the inaugural events scheduled for 2022. Interested parties are also invited to apply to host qualification events, which will act as showcases to demonstrate the sport and provide additional exposure for the host venue.

Air Race E founder and CEO Jeff Zaltman said, “This is an important milestone for us and we’re confident the locations we choose will be the perfect destinations for such a moment in history. We’re excited to reveal more and we encourage anyone interested in being a part of the future of electric mobility and green motorsport to get in touch.”

Official Founding Partner Airbus will be one of the main sponsors of the highly anticipated first event in the series, true air racing which sees electric aircraft competing directly against each other on a tight, five-kilometre circuit just ten metres above the ground, at speeds faster than any land-based motorsport.

Having accumulated fifty years of experience in air racing, the Formula Air Racing Association (FARA), is the global governing body for the new electric air racing formula.
