The new electric single-seater championship being created by former Mahindra Formula E team boss Dilbagh Gill and Formula 1 and FE podium-finisher Nick Heidfeld has been rebranded from its original ACE Championship name to Formula G.
FORMULA G'S EXPLANATION OF ITS NEW NAME
The series said its new G initial had multiple meanings:
Formula Green (clean energy/sustainability/social conscious)
Formula Good (education/ opportunity/diversity/inclusive)
Formula Global (global coverage/four regions/emerging motorsport markets)
Formula Growth (affordable/accessible/ability to progress)
Formula Groundbreaking (technology/innovation/modern/exciting)
Formula G is due to launch in late 2024, and said its calendar will encompass "independent championships in four regions" and run as "a support series on the same tracks, on the same weekends, as existing combustion engine, alternative fuel, and all-electric powered racing events".
The Race understands it's possible it could share the Formula E bill at some of the world championship's Asian rounds in the future.
