Jeff Zaltsman, CEO and Founder of Air Race E

In addition to races in the inaugural series, interested parties can also apply to host qualification events which will act as showcase test events to demonstrate the sport and provide additional exposure for the host venue.

Air Race E founder and CEO Jeff Zaltman said: “This is an important milestone for us and we’re confident the locations we choose will be the perfect destinations for such a moment in history. We’re excited to reveal more and we encourage anyone interested in being a part of the future of electric mobility and green motorsport to get in touch.”

Official Founding Partner Airbus will be one of the main sponsors of the highly anticipated first event as part of its existing agreement signed at the inception of Air Race E in February 2019. The organiser has since entered discussions with a number of other partners looking to get behind the hallmark event in aviation, having recently announced Ansys as its Official Simulation Software Partner.

The bidding process is being managed by Quantum Consultancy, in partnership with Air Race E. If you are interested in hosting an Air Race E event, or wish to receive further information, please contact us at: hosting@airracee.com

Expressions of Interest should be received between now and Sunday 22 November 2020.

About Air Race E

Air Race E will become the world’s first all-electric airplane race when it launches its inaugural series of international races in 2021. Run by Air Race Events and led by world-leading air racing promoter Jeff Zaltman, the man behind the globally successful Air Race 1 World Cup, the race is set to revolutionize air racing and pioneer innovations in electric aviation. Air Race E will see electric airplanes race directly against each other on a tight 5km circuit just 10m above the ground and at speeds faster than any land-based motorsport. The demand for speed, performance and power management under the rigors of a competitive race environment provide the perfect platform for the development and promotion of cleaner, faster and more technologically-advanced electric engines. The Formula Air Racing Association (FARA), with 50 years of experience in air racing, is the global governing body for the new electric air racing formula.
