E-Racing365 Launches; Sam Smith Named Formula E Editor

A new authority in electric racing news has arrived with the launch of e-racing365.com. John Dagys Media, publishers of the industry-leading Sportscar365 Web site, will expand into the automotive industry’s fastest growing market.

With a detailed focus on the FIA Formula E Championship, e-racing365 will deliver daily news, features, analysis and insight on the burgeoning single-seater championship, as well as other emerging electric racing series, including Roborace and the planned Electric GT Championship.

The exciting new endeavor comes four years after the launch of Sportscar365. The site has become the go-to source for GT and endurance racing news, with more than 25 million page views and unrivaled content from the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, FIA World Endurance Championship and World Challenge paddocks.

“Given the electrifying growth seen in e-mobility, and most importantly, the success in the electric racing scene, we felt it was the right time to expand our reach to include this emerging formula,” said founder John Dagys.

“It’s not by chance that some of the world’s leading manufacturers and drivers are either currently competing in, or have announced intentions of joining Formula E within the next two seasons.

“We want to be at the forefront in helping share their stories of electrification while covering the exciting developments that are rapidly occurring on and off the track.”

Leading Formula E journalist Sam Smith has been appointed e-racing365’s Formula E Editor.

Smith, a 20-year veteran in motorsports media, is coming off a three-year stint with Motorsport.com as its Formula E editor and is regarded as one of the most well-connected and observant reporters in the paddock.

“I’m really excited to be joining e-racing365 and especially working with John, who I have known and respected for many years,” said Smith.

“I have attended the vast majority of Formula E races and in fact before that was involved in electric projects with Lola.

“To now have the opportunity to further communicate the latest news and happenings in Formula E is a real opportunity.

“The focus will be on providing original and well-researched detailed content, features and breaking news on a daily basis. We want to be the go-to place for Formula E insiders, fans and enthusiasts from the get-go.”

E-racing365 will also have several columns from the biggest names in Formula E and regular comment and news from the leading figures in the burgeoning championship.

In addition to racing coverage, e-racing365 will also be home to electric car industry news, road tests and insight that holds a direct link between the production line and race track.

Additional staff hires are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

“The automotive industry is in the midst of a massive transformation, and with projects such as Porsche’s Mission E sports car, what we see on the race track will soon be in our driveways,” said Dagys.

“It’s an exciting time to be expanding our coverage into a new and powerful market while remaining with our core values in being an independent news outlet that people can trust.”

    Great news, welcome to the 365 family Sam. FE needs and deserves great dedicated coverage, just like Sportscar365 has done for the WEC and IMSA – looking forward to the insights to come.
