This New FG-Twin Race Car by Heidfeld and Gill Features Side Displays for Fans

Originally conceived as the ACE Championship, the new series was designed to serve as a talent pool for Formula E and other categories. The name was later changed to Formula G and as plans solidified, it is now called the FG Series.

The FG racing series is getting ready for its start in 2025 with the FG-Twin, an electric race car that looks like it came from a Science Fiction movie. The FG-Twin was designed by Daniel Simon, who is known for his work on vehicles in hit movies like Tron Legacy and Top Gun Maverick. It has a radical look and one feature that makes it stand out: digital screens on the outside that show race data like battery level and position so fans can keep up with the action. The FG-Twin is more than just good looks, though. This race car is flexible and can be set up for either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It has up to 350kW (470bhp) of power and is made of modules that let teams make quick changes during race weekends.

What is FG Series?

The FG Series has been designed as an affordable feeder series for Formula E and other electric racing championships. This all-electric series will feature two levels: FG2 for young drivers progressing from karting and junior disciplines, and FG1 for more experienced racers.

A unique aspect of the series is its use of a single car that can compete at both levels by adjusting power levels and setups. This allows one team to have four drivers sharing just two cars, significantly reducing costs and making participation more accessible.

The organisers are aiming for a 2025 debut, with the full calendar to be announced later this year. Plans include races in India and on regional circuits, focusing on areas currently underrepresented in existing championships. The series aims to democratize access to electric racing, nurturing talent and expanding the sport's global reach.
