The rest of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship season will be shown live to Japanese fans through a live stream on Twitter, it was announced on Tuesday.

The partnership starts with this weekend’s Mexico City E-Prix and will remain for every remaining race in the 2018-19 season.

“We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to bring the racing closer to fans, as well as enhancing the viewing experience both at home and at the track,” commented Ali Russell, Formula E Media & Business Development Director.

“This partnership with Twitter is a first for the series and an area we’re looking to expand in the future.

“The fans in Japan follow Formula E closely, especially with names like Takuma Sato and Kamui Kobayashi behind the wheel in the past – along with the inclusion of Nissan next season.

“Japan is an important market for the series and now fans can’t miss a moment of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.”
