Formula E set for its debut

Battery-powered cars will take to the circuits next month in a new motorsport championship.


    September will witness the launch of a new car-racing championship, one that is very different to what we see in Formula One.

    In Formula E, the cars will be electric. The project is not just about competition but the idea is to help the image and sales of electric cars.

    Ten teams, 20 drivers and 40 cars which can reach speeds up to 225kmh.

    Lee Wellings reports from Donington, England.
