The Nissan Formula E Team is looking to develop on their recent strong form, as Season 9 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship travels to Portland for the fourth and final brand-new venue of the season.
Last time out in Jakarta, the team proved its potential, with Sacha Fenestraz and Norman Nato taking fourth and fifth respectively in the second Jakarta E-Prix. As the campaign enters its latter stages, the duo will be looking to build on that result to ensure a strong end to the season.
The final single-header of Season 9 sees Formula E head to its fourth ever location in the United States of America, following races in Miami, Long Beach and New York in previous years. The 3.19-kilometre Portland International Raceway features 12 corners, with long straights into Turns 1 and 10 offering the best overtaking spots.
For this E-Prix, both Nissan cars will sport the logo of the Pole to Pole expedition, with explorers Chris and Julie Ramsey set to stop off in Portland. The husband-and-wife duo are currently embarking on a nine-month long journey from the 1823 Magnetic North Pole to the South Pole aboard an all-electric Nissan Ariya. They will visit the race team in the garage and meet with the drivers before continuing on with their adventure.
In addition, ahead of this weekend, Nissan Formula E Team has also launched a new streetwear collection, made from upcycled decades-old Nissan racewear – NISMO Thrifted. Created by sustainable fashion designer Mia D’Amato, the collection is inspired by Nissan’s commitment to sustainability and carbon neutrality by 2050, and aims to showcase that we can all contribute in many ways towards a waste-free future.
Qualifying in Portland will get underway at 12:40 PDT (UTC -7), with the E-Prix at 17:00 PDT. Find out how to watch here.
