The FIA Formula E Championship is the world’s first fully electric racing series. Formula E began in 2014 and has been taking the world by storm ever since, driving the future with its fusion of motorsport and entertainment. The third Formula E season began in Hong Kong earlier this month with the first-ever HKT Hong Kong ePrix.
This was not only the first time an international event if this size and scale had been held on the unique, dynamic Central harbour front, it was also the biggest motorsport event ever held in Hong Kong. Pico provided full-fledged master project and event management services for the entire exciting spectacle. Our services covered all liaison and co-ordination work with the project stakeholders, including government authorities, police and fire departments, landlords and building representatives. We also provided the overall track infrastructure and facilities, pit lanes, race control rooms and corporate suites, turning a portion of the Central road network – ordinarily crowded with cars, taxis, buses and people – into a fast but secure two-kilometre urban circuit featuring long straightaways and hairpin bends, with concrete blocks and debris fences laid carefully by the roadside as a safety buffer. Our dedicated teams also played a significant role in the project management of all hospitality facilities, e-villages, grandstands and media centres, delivering the all-around excellence such a high-profile event deserved.
