6 April 2021, Banbury, UK – The 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship continues this week with rounds 3 and 4 of the seventh season of the all-electric street racing series taking place on the streets of Rome, Italy. Alexander Sims and Alex Lynn will field the #29 and #94 M7Electros respectively at the first European race of the season.
After two previous visits to Rome, Formula E has unveiled an almost completely renovated circuit layout for the third iteration of the Rome E-Prix. The new track retains the tricky characteristics that Rome has become known for, with undulations and elevation changes and surface variations. It features technical, tight twisty sections as well as a number of fast, sweeping corners, making it one of the most challenging tracks on the calendar. With 19 turns, the 3.385km circuit is one of the longest that competitors take on in Formula E.
Ahead of the race weekend, Mahindra Racing’s Official Timekeeper partner Maurice Lacroix has unveiled a Special Edition watch range, inspired by the race team. The three new designs, which are bespoke versions of their current AIKON model, each boast impressive features making them ideal for wearing both on and off the track. The luxury Swiss brand has led the way in the watchmaking industry for over 40 years, always maintaining the values of innovation, affordability and value.

Round 3 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will take place on Saturday 10 April at 4pm local time, with Round 4 beginning at the earlier time of 1pm on Sunday 11 April.
