Formula E comes to Rome

Formula E comes to Rome


14 July 2023 – From Friday 14 to Sunday 16 July, rounds 13 and 14 of the racing series dedicated to all-electric cars will take place in Rome, which welcomes the penultimate event of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, now in the closing stages of Season 9. 

Already the setting for pitched battles on the Circuito cittadino dell’EUR in the last four seasons, the eternal city is the only Italian stage in this season's calendar. For the first time, the two single-seaters from the Maserati MSG Racing team will line up on the Italian grid, with drivers Maximilian Günther and Edoardo Mortara flying the flag for the Trident.

The 2023 Hankook Rome E-Prix is one of the most hotly anticipated races among fans and drivers alike; from the early afternoon on Friday, the visors will be down for a gruelling and exhilarating contest. One of this season's longest circuits, it is designed around the imposing, early 20th century monuments in the EUR district, most notably the iconic Colosseo quadrato.

After delivering excellent performances in the Berlin and Jakarta stages – with two podium placings and a historic victory in Indonesia – and having picked up points in Portland, Maserati is seeking further success in its home race. In the meantime, it is getting ready to turn heads off the track with a series of activities scheduled over the weekend.

After the pre-event round table aimed at exploring the transfer of technology from the racetrack to the road – where Formula E is a benchmark platform for the development of next-generation production cars – on Saturday and Sunday invited journalists will be taken on exclusive hot laps aboard the GranTurismo Folgore, the extraordinarily high-performance coupé with 800-volt technology, for a unique and hair-raising experience along the same roads contested by drivers in the highest category of electric motorsport. 

The word on everybody's lips at the event in Rome will therefore be Folgore, which means “lightning” and has come to symbolise Maserati's future production. In addition to being the name of the Trident brand’s speedy GEN3 single-seater, it also identifies the entire all-electric range, with the GranTurismo Folgore and Grecale Folgore being the first fully electric models from the Modena-based automaker. 

On Friday evening, a light show will be staged to coincide with the Italian round of this season's Formula E Championship, featuring video projections and mapping on the façade of the Palazzo dei Congressi. At the foot of this imposing building, Maserati will be showcasing a Grecale Folgore, the icon of comfort in e-mobility, alongside the GranTurismo One-Off Luce, a statement of innovation and sustainability 


with its Folgore all-electric motor. Last but not least will be the Maserati Tipo Folgore GEN3 single-seater, providing an up-close glimpse of the car that will battle it out on the streets of Rome this weekend.  

During the home stage, a tribute to the year of Maserati’s electrification will feature on the helmets of the Trident team's two drivers, which are customised in the same Rame Folgore colour as the brand’s all-electric coupé and SUV, a detail which is sure to delight enthusiasts of the brand that epitomises luxury on four wheels.

Fans of the Trident brand will also be able to enjoy the 2023 Hankook Rome E-Prix from a stand dedicated to them, together with some of the brand’s employees from Modena, who will be taking part in the home stage to support Maserati in its first Formula E race on Italian soil.
