There's A Street Racing Battle In Morocco This Weekend

Carprices Team / Posted On - August 23rd 2022

Nissan is bringing an exhilarating race to the streets of Marrakesh, Morocco with its e.dams team. After tasting success at the opening round of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, the racing team is heading to the Marrakesh ePrix.
This weekend will be the third visit of the Formula E circus to Morocco and the first for Nissan. The company debuted its racing team in this season of the championship as the first Japanese automaker on the grid. Nissan e.dams drivers Sebastien Buemi and Oliver Rowland finished sixth and seventh in the opening round of the Formula E, bringing Nissan up to fourth place in the team standings.
Nissan might be new to the ePrix, but it is not coming to Morocco for the first time. In 2016, the company brought the biggest 100% electric fleet ever seen in the country to the United Nations Climate Change Conference summit (COP 22) in Marrakesh. A total of 50 Nissan electric cars made up the fleet that shuttled delegates around to showcase the viability of an electric ecosystem in Morocco.
The upcoming ABB FIA Formula E Championship race in Marrakesh is the second of 13 to be held across the world. This is a platform to showcase the performance side of Nissan Intelligent Mobility. NIM is the brand's vision for changing the way cars are driven, powered, and integrated into society.
Michael Carcamo, Nissan's global motorsports director, said: “We have our first race under our belt, and now the Nissan e.dams team is very determined to continue to move forward and show what we can do. We learned a great deal at the opening round, and Nissan, e.dams and NISMO have all been working tirelessly to further develop our chassis and powertrain package.
“The series is providing Nissan with an outstanding platform to show what Nissan Intelligent Mobility is all about, and we're excited about the challenge ahead in Morocco. Marrakesh will also be a great opportunity to see what our test and reserve driver, Mitsunori Takaboshi, and our simulator driver, Jann Mardenborough, can do behind the wheel,” Carcamo concluded.
With gimmicks like Attack Mode and FanBoost, the ABB FIA Formula E has a lot going for it. It is a fresh new way of following motorsports, and Nissan is one of the early movers in the championship.
