The all-electric, open-wheel racing series is visiting the Big Apple for the first time and racing on the streets of Brooklyn.

Formula E is an open-wheel series that runs all-electric race cars. Now in its third season, the series is heading to New York City for its next race on July 15th. Brooklyn, to be exact.

This is the first-ever FIA-sanctioned open-wheel event to be held in the Big Apple – F1's never done it – so it's kind of a big deal. Watch the video above we made in conjunction with Formula E sponsor Tag Heuer and hosted by NYC's own Derek D to find out why we're so excited that electric street racing is coming to capital of the world, New York City.
