TEAM WIN SOCIAL MEDIA AWARD
DS Virgin Racing receive honours at end of season Gala...
DS Virgin Racing picked up the honours in the Social Media Award last night during Formula E’s end of season Gala.
All 10 Formula E Teams were asked by the series to submit an entry to be judged by an independent panel. DS Virgin Racing submitted it’s ‘Racing through Rome’ video filmed earlier this year in which Sam and Alex, together with Formula E TV presenters Nicki Shields and Jack Nicholls, were set a number of challenges using mini electric buggies in a race through the city’s streets.
In the video (below), the two teams were left to their own devices and filmed using Go Pros to capture all the antics as they tried to navigate their way through the congestion of Rome.
The award was presented to the team’s Chief Marketing Officer Cameron Maultby during the Gala evening, which also saw driver Sam Bird collect his third place trophy.
The Formula E season now takes a break after the season finale in New York returning later in the year with pre-season testing in October.
