Red Hook to host ePrix racecar event this summer

Racecar drivers from all over the world will spin their electric wheels in New York City when Red Hook hosts the ePrix racecar event at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in July. 



"We were looking for a place to race in New York for a long time, and we found it in Red Hook. It's the coolest part of Brooklyn, as we have an incredible view of the Statue of Liberty. I think it's the best place to race in the world. When we got told we finally got the green light to race in Brooklyn, it was like a dream come true", says Antonio Felix da Costa, a U.S. Formula E championship driver.



The Formula E roadshow event will take place on July 15 and 16.
