Ace Championship rebrands as Formula G

Junior series to debut in late 2024 across four regions.

The all-electric Ace Championship has rebranded as Formula G for its launch in 2024.

Confirmed:

  • Junior series to debut in late 2024 across four regions
  • Formula G will be a support series to existing racing events

Context:

The series, co-founded by former Mahindra Formula E team principal Dilbagh Gill and ex-Formula One driver Nick Heidfeld, provides the unique concept of a dual-powered car. The car can be raced at reduced power by a junior driver and then full power by a professional driver. This enables costs to be reduced across the competition, as teams can run two races with the budget and crew for one car.

Comment:

Gill said: “I am proud that after receiving support at every level of the sport, Formula G, by launching as a support series in multiple regions, is the first global series to create affordability and accessibility, unique by region, that will enable Formula G to attract more diversity in team owners, drivers, mechanics and engineers, while creating significantly more career opportunities on and off the track.”

Coming next:

There is no confirmed start date for Formula G yet, nor is it clear which series it will be looking to support. It will feature independent championships in four regions, which will be announced in due course.
