Andretti Sports Marketing has been appointed by Formula E to be the official event organisers for the Miami Formula E race – a new fully-electric racing championship taking place on the streets of Downtown Miami on 14 March 2015.
The Miami Formula E race will be one of two races in the US alongside Los Angeles on 14 February 2015.
Designed to promote interest and investment in electric vehicles and sustainable motoring, 10 teams each with two drivers will compete in one hour races using Formula cars capable of reaching speeds of more than 225kph.
All US Formula E races will also be broadcast live across the FOX family of networks, including FOX Sports 1, after the network secured the exclusive media rights earlier this year.
The Andretti family has been tied to racing since the 1960s, when Mario Andretti won the Indianapolis 500 and later raced Formula One.
