Almost three years after the Spark-Renault SRT_01E made its debut in , all 20 drivers and 10 sim racers will test their skills on a bespoke track, incorporating the famous Las Vegas Strip, for the opportunity to win a share of $1 million – the biggest prize in racing history.

 

The ground-breaking Visa Vegas eRace is taking place at The Venetian Hotel as part of Sports Business Innovation at 16:00 (PST) on the 50th edition of CES on Saturday.

 

The Vegas eRace will make history as the biggest sim race event to date. The winner will take away a cool $200,000, second stepping out on $100k, third $50k and down to $20k each for drivers finishing 11-30. Fans once again have the opportunity to influence the race outcome by voting for their favourite driver with FanBoost on social media and at fanboost.fiaformula.com.

 

The top three drivers will receive an extra 100kJ of energy, which could be decisive.

Formula E returns to US soil for the inaugural running of the New York City ePrix on July 15 and 16, against the backdrop of Lower Manhattan on the purpose-built Brooklyn Street Circuit.
