Sustainable road racing is coming to Red Hook. The popular FIA Formula E Championship, now in its 4th year, features the best in electric-powered formula auto racing. Single-seat electric cars tear through a track 1.2 miles in length around 13 turns at speeds of up to 140 miles per hour! Not only do these quiet e-cars produce zero emissions, they are powered by 100% renewable fuel via Formula E Glycerine Generators.
Red Hook provides a NYC postcard-picture setting with backdrops of the Statue of Liberty, Downtown Manhattan, and the Brooklyn Bridge. And it all happens at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, a 5-minute walk from the newest hotel attraction in Red Hook: The Look Hotel. Come by Friday or Saturday and enjoy the best souvlaki in New York City from Franky’s Souvlaki food truck parked right out in front of our hotel.
Then head over to the Allianz eVillage to meet the drivers, see the cars, and listen to the sounds of the EJ playing the best in electronic dance music.
