Formula E is in Long Beach, California on April 4th, 2015. This brand new, FIA sanctioned, auto event showcases the future of motorsport by being the only global racing series that features an all electric powertrain driven car. The Formula E adopted hashtag is #DrivetheFuture, and they, along with all the teams and sponsors involved, are certainly driving the future of motorsport.
Long Beach, California became my destination location when I moved to Southern California. This city has a rich history of motorsport and racing dating back to 1977 and involving Formula 1. CART (now IndyCar) moved in during the mid 1980’s replacing Formula 1 and bringing the Grand Prix of Long Beach. Now, the city comes alive with racing fun every year and that was a huge motivator for me to live here in Long Beach, Ca.

My passions are digital media and motorsport, so I am delighted to integrate the two worlds. Using Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and WordPress, I have captured the “building of a race course” and the build up to all the motorsport action in Long Beach for the #motorsportmonth of April.
This is an account of what I have seen and experienced from late February up until just a few days before the FIA Formula E in Long Beach via my social media channels. Please look through and I hope it gets you psyched up for all the cars, action, and racing that is happening in April.
