E1 Series is the new electric boat racing series created by Alejandro Agag and Rodi Basso to debut in 2023. In order to do so, the team behind the project is conducting the first tests of the RaceBird, the official vehicle of the championship, under Italian waters to extract as much information as possible.
After the RaceBird’s presentation, the cockpit assembled to resemble an airplane attracted a lot of attention, and even more so to know what the pilots’ first-person vision will be like. Knowing the limits to be reached will be essential for success during the races, so having the best possible field of vision will be crucial.
One of the tests carried out by the E1 Series team shows first-person images of what the drivers’ perspective will be like. Exclusively, the series that plans to electrify the water published a video where the sensations that the protagonists will experience aboard the RaceBird can be appreciated.
The E1 Series vision
The next step in sustainability according to Alejandro Agag is to electrify the water. After his resounding success at the helm of Formula E and Extreme E, in collaboration with Rodi Basso he will seek to establish a world championship that highlights the most important element for life and existence on Earth.
The races aim to entertain speed lovers, but at the same time use the sport as an educational platform about what is happening in the world with respect to climate change. In addition, exposing what is happening will not be all, as proposing solutions and taking action for the preservation of the ecosystem is also part of the E1 Series agenda.
Up to 12 teams will compete in the inaugural season in the stunning and visually appealing venues, where one of them has been confirmed: Venice Racing Team. Aboard the RaceBird and its 50 knots of force (93 km/h or 58 mph) they will travel oceans, rivers and lakes with the objective of transmitting a message of sustainability.
