Video: The Formula E demo at CES was… a little disappointing

There has been quite a bit of talk about the all-new FIA Formula E Championship, which starts in a little over nine months' time in Beijing, China, but the Formula E’s demonstration at this year's CES expo left a lot to be desired…

Instead of tearing the car around a racetrack (like BMW and their self-drifting M235i) the Formula E car just did a few donuts in a car park outside the CES expo in Las Vegas in front of a crowd of tech heads.

Not only was the presentation a little underwhelming, but the sound of the car is also a little bit worrying. It’s not exactly a sweet sounding noise and can you just imagine what it’s going to sound like when there are 20 E cars out on track? Earplugs may be required...

Lets just hope Formula E’s next demonstration is a little bit more exciting. To find out more about Formula E, including the race calendar, driver info and what Leonardo DiCaprio has to do with the sport, then check out fiaformulae.com.
