Finally compete for the world's fastest EV car (electric car) with electric formula car "Formula E ChampionshipWill start tomorrow, September 13, 2014 (Saturday) in Beijing, China. Formula E that gains driving power with a motor rather than a gasoline engine is a new clean and environmentally friendly new motor sports because it does not emit exhaust emissions unless there are high-pitched exhaust notes. I have seen the state just before the opening of the new generation race in Beijing on the spot.
Formula E - Official FIA Formula E Championship
The Formula E opening race will be held around the Olympic Park (National Stadium) in Beijing.
Arrived at the D exit of Subway Line 8 "Okubayashi Katsu Park Station" on September 12, 2014 on local time.
It is the national stadium (known as the bird's nest) that can be seen far away
A strange shaped building.
As I walked toward the bird 's nest, I saw the national stadium north way ahead.
However, the main road is surrounded by a fence and can not go to the Olympic park.
Notice of road blockade.
Formula E is not a conventional engine car such as F1, but a motor sports by EV car (electric car), so no sharp engine sound. Therefore, all the races will be held in an urban area course using public roads.
A person who works hard with a fence.
If you look closely, you finish the fence in the course. I have not got 24 hours until the race ....
An artificial pond with a dragon shape on the east side of the bird's nest. A formula E machine runs alongside this pond.
I saw MICHELIN's sign and realized that it was finally a race course.
Course Marshall does not have a pity on final check.
Beijing people are also curiously looking into urban courses. This is the 19th corner located in the northeast of the course. The north side of the course looks like this and you can see the state of the race without tickets.
Then moved to the south side of the urban course. Arrived at Subway Line 8 "Okinawa Center (Olympic Sports Center) Station".
Is there something entertaining, the plaza is crowded with people.
However, the Olympic park is closed for Formula E to be held.
I went through to see Formula E 's machine.
It is a big square, but few people.
Beijing Olympic mascot.
Below the Ancheol Bridge, it is the North Pacific East Road.
A bird 's nest is approaching. It is big.
Go through the gate and go underground.
The escalator is also closed with a fence.
Atmosphere that guards are under guard and it was pretty nervous.
When I passed under the dark road, the light appeared.
I will go up to the ground.
The state of the east side of the strange building that I saw earlier is like this.
Bird's nest in the north.
Overcoming the fence is a complex chican of the 13th corner from the cranked 10th corner. It is quite tight.
As you can see on the road sign, this is usually a public road.
Marshall is also on standby. We are preparing for the test run scheduled to begin at 3:30 pm.
The crew of the TV camera moved on the Segway. It is a perfect vehicle for moving inside the vast course.
We have time to visit the bird's nest until test driving begins.
A huge building that can not fit in the camera.
Dull color gives overwhelming presence.
Looking carefully and under repair.
Compared with the back building, you can see the huge.
For those who love the factory it is a dirty mechanism.
But when you look closer, it is getting tangled as it is.
It seems that light is also a nest of birds.
In addition, the national stadium usually can see the inside with an entrance fee of 50 yuan (about 900 yen).
After Subaru Forrester's check run three laps, a hybrid car that will serve as a safety carBMW i8Started running. It seems that the test will be held yesterday.
The motoring sound of Queen and the skill sound of the tire were raised and the Formula E machine began running on a narrow course.
You can see how the Formula E machine reminiscent of a huge radio control runs through a cranky chicane in the following movie.
