BMW i has been confirmed as the race title partner of the ABB FIA Formula E Berlin E-Prix on May 19.
As well as being the official vehicle partner of the series, the German manufacturer is putting its name to its home race when Formula E returns to Tempelhof Airport later next month.
Alejandro Agag, founder and CEO of Formula E, said, “The race in Berlin has featured on the calendar every season and we’ve been working closely alongside BMW i for equally as long, so it’s pleasing to see their growing commitment to the series.
“BMW i has always been supportive of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship since the very beginning – both as official vehicle partner and now as the race title partner of the BMW i Berlin E-Prix. I’m looking forward to seeing the fans showing up in force for what I’m sure will be another scintillating spectacle at Tempelhof Airport.”
“The title partnership for the German round of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in Berlin is a key component of our extensive commitment to this series,” said Jörg Reimann, vice president of BMW Brand Experience.
“For BMW, the opportunity to actively shape the event and offer visitors a unique BMW brand experience is always at the heart of this kind of cooperation. That is precisely what we will be doing at the BMW i Berlin E-Prix alongside Formula E.”
