Virgin Fan Boost
Virgin Racing is a team competing in the world’s first fully-electric racing series – Formula E - racing on street circuits in the heart of some of the world’s leading cities, with the finale arriving in the UK in June 2015.
With experience in Formula One, GP2, Formula Three and Formula Renault 3.5, Sam Bird and Jaime Alguersuari have joined the Virgin Racing team as drivers for the inaugural Formula E season and with one race complete, they are looking to fans to help them get faster in future races. The season powered up in September where the first Formula E race took place in Beijing, China. It was an eventful round with Virgin Racing taking 15 points in 3rd place with a podium finish for Sam Bird after starting 11th on the grid. The excitement of Formula E combines the future of automotive with the forefront of not only vehicle technology but social media and entertainment as well. This means that in Formula E fans, like yourself, can give your favourite driver (Sam Bird or Jaime Alguersuari) an extra speed boost by voting for them prior to each race whether you’re in front of your TV at home or cheering from the trackside. The three drivers with the most votes will each receive one five-second ‘power-boost’ temporarily increasing their car’s power – it’s like a real-time video game and you can be in control! Here at TeamSport we are hoping our votes help Sam and Jaime get a power boost in Malaysia and throughout the rest of the season. If you want to play a part in the next Formula E race in Malaysia on 22nd November, visit http://fanboost.fiaformulae.com and vote for your favourite Virgin Racing driver.
