Hong Kong EPrix Organizers Confident New Format Will Boost Interest

Hong Kong ePrix organizers are "confident of taking this year's event to another level by turning it into a two-race extravaganza over two days, enhancing the atmosphere and boosting spectator interest," according to Chan Kin-wa of the SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST. The city is also "expected to kick off" the '17-18 season after making its debut in October. Hong Kong Automobile Association Honorary President Lawrence Yu Kam-kee, widely considered the "Father" of Hong Kong Formula E Racing, said, "There was only one race last year as it was our inaugural event and everything was new to us. As we continue to stage the event for the second consecutive season, we are confident of expanding it to two races in two days which will definitely be more attractive to the fans for more racing and a better atmosphere. There will also be other changes as we are looking for more supporting races in order to provide more entertainment during the two racing days. Even electronic go karting is one of the possibilities." Yu added Hong Kong would "likely launch the fourth season of the world series in late November or early December," although the final schedule has yet to be finalized (SCMP, 1/11).
