Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 11, 2014
The FIA Formula E Championship – the world’s first fully-electric racing series – is making its historical Miami ePrix debut March 14, 2015 and is inviting the South Florida community to participate in what will be the most impressive motorsport entertainment event of the year by signing up as volunteers.
“It is with the support of the community that the Miami ePrix will be a success,” said Miami ePrix General Manager, Chuck M. Martinez. “We are eager to work alongside local volunteers for this groundbreaking sporting event.” Miami ePrix volunteers can sign-up online by completing The ePrix Association Member Application, available here.
Race details, including circuit location and layout, were revealed during a press conference held at the Pérez Art Museum this past October. The eight turn, 2.17km circuit is located in Downtown Miami, along Biscayne Bay around the streets of the American Airlines Arena, home to the Miami Heat NBA basketball team. Produced by leading track design company Ayesa, it is the setting for the fifth race in the inaugural Formula E season and the first of two events in the U.S.
Volunteer applications must be completed by March 5, 2015. For more information about volunteering for the Miami ePrix, please e-mail FEvolunteers(at)andrettisportsmarketing(dot)com or call (305) 913-4639.
