Can you hear that? No you can't...its electric!

Twitter is fast becoming my best friend (no offence real friends).  I'm not the greatest tweeter, nor am I a RT junkie, but when I feed this social medium with a few pictures its nice to see the response I get. About a month back I got an email from Ross Ringham, who runs the Current E website, he said he loved my shots from his twitter feed & was hoping I could be of some use to him for future Formula E projects.  Now if you don't know what Formula E is, I suggest educating yourself and browsing his fine website www.current-e.com

One of the best things about new championships is it brings fresh opportunities, it isn't saturated with long running individuals yet & to gain publicity, its actually quite open to the public (not that open, but better than other long standing series....cough cough).  Anyway, Ross & I made a trip up to Donington Park race circuit to take shots of the new Formula E HQ being built, which will hopefully house all the teams (yes you heard me right!).  

Time to update your signs Donington

Now we were there for just construction shots, but we found out there was a Formula E car on site, result!  Wasting no time, hit the HQ build, took my shots, then shot the car for an hour (poor Ross) & headed back home.

Donington sure has a buzz about the place with the new build & with the championship taking place in the UK winter months, the motorsport media won't have time off around Christmas anymore , which I'm sure they don't mind.

So, lets see where this all leads, accreditation for Formula E should be relatively straight forward for the 5 test days in the summer thanks to my buddies at Current E, but I think its time to cover some actual racing close up & with the racing taking place in busy city streets of exotic countries, backdrops & aerial views will be truly epic!

Such a great event deserves so much more recognition

On a separate note, we visited the circuit on the 11th April, look what the plaque above says...nice coincidence if you ask me & brought a tear to the eye.
