Electric Car Street Race Coming to Downtown

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — For once, the “Gentlemen, start your engines” command will be followed by nary a sound.

City and other officials this week announced that the streets of Downtown next year will play host to an electric vehicle race. The specific route has not been identified, though Downtown has hosted street races during the past few summer X Games.

The Los Angeles Formula E race will be one in a series of 10 fully electric vehicle races taking place around the world in 2014. Miami is the only other U.S. city on the schedule. London, Rome, Beijing and Buenos Aires are among the international locations.

Officials with race promoters Formula E Holdings said Los Angeles was selected in part because of its electric vehicle infrastructure. The city has 121 public electric vehicle charging stations.
