Finally, after years of teasing, motorsport is finally coming to New York City, and in a big way. On July 15th and 16th, the ninth race in the 3rd season of Formula E will take place in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn. BMW has been the Official Vehicle Partner of Formula E since its inception in September of 2014, and for the 2018-2019 season recently announced it will join Formula E as an official manufacturer. Since the 2015-2016 season, BMW has been a technical partner for the Andretti Autosport team. 

On Tuesday July 11th, BMW of Manhattan hosted a Behind The Scenes evening celebrating BMW's involvement in Formula E and featured a Q&A with BMW factory driver Antonio Felix De Costa. Two BMW i8s, a BMW 530e iPerformance plug-in hybrid and a full-scale Formula E display car were showcased.
