New York City held its first ePrix of the FIA Formula E Championship, the world’s first fully-electric racing series. TAG Heuer Brand Ambassador Chris Hemsworth got an exclusive hands-on experience to explore both the track and fully-electric race car.
After a simulator-run training session, the Australian actor had the privilege to experience the Brooklyn track with the Statue of Liberty and New York City skyline as his backdrop on a new circuit of 1.947km (1.21 mile). As he cautiously familiarized himself with the powerful car, Chris Hemsworth only hit the borders once before getting back at it – in a true #DontCrackUnderPressure spirit.
Sunday, Sam Bird and the DS Virgin Racing Formula E Team took the very technical track by storm, winning the first ever New York City ePrix. Congratulations to them.
