LGT's involvement in
Formula E

LGT is supporting the first international motorsport series for electrically powered race cars, the FIA Formula E championship, by sponsoring the ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport team.

Formula E - Innovation in motorsport

Formula E is setting new standards in motorsport. In only a short span of time, it has succeeded in establishing itself as an attractive racing series that captivates millions of spectators around the world. As the first class of auto racing for electric cars, it stands for innovative sustainable technologies.

As a sponsor of the ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport Formula E team, we are proud to be part of this pioneering project. Long-term, progressive and sustainable thinking and actions have long been an important part of our corporate culture. Tradition, stability and entrepreneurship, the values that characterize family-owned companies, are another element that connects us with the ABT team.

In this video Lucas di Grassi explains the Formula E to Marco Büchel. Watch "Where car and ski racing meet".

    The ABT formula e team

    From the outset, the ABT Formula E team and its two drivers Lucas di Grassi and Daniel Abt have succeeded in remaining at the forefront in the battle for the top spots. During the second season, Lucas di Grassi fought neck and neck for the championship title through to the last race, in the end just narrowly missing his goal by only two points. As the driver with the most podium finishes, he can nevertheless look back on an outstanding season and together with his team enjoy the overall second place finish for both the driver and the team.

    ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport

    Having won five DTM titles as well as numerous victories and titles at a variety of GT and long-distance championships, ABT Sportsline is one of the most successful German motorsport teams.

      Electric and fast

      The cars accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in approximately three seconds. Their maximum speed is 225 km/h. 200 kW are available during the practice sessions and qualifyings, while 170 kW are available during the race. The noise level during races is around 80 decibels, which corresponds approximately to the volume of a truck driving by at a distance of 7.5 meters.

      Electromobility and formula e

      Over the last two years, Formula E has developed into an attractive international racing series, and its fan base is growing continuously. The staging of the races, which take place in the hearts of major cities around the world, has its own very special appeal – no other racing series offers spectators such an up-close look at the world of motorsport. Normally, spectators have to travel to circuits far outside city limits to attend traditional motorsport races. Formula E, on the other hand, brings the sport to the cities and to the people.

      Electromobility, particularly in big cities, is becoming an increasingly important issue. “We will be seeing changes in mobility in the future. We expect that after 2020, we will witness a significant rise in the number of fully electric-powered vehicles,” says Prof. Peter Gutzmer, Deputy CEO and Chief Technology Officer at Schaeffler. “Particularly in cities, electromobility will become the norm.”

      Accumulating knowledge for mass production

      The knowledge that mechanics, developers and engineers accumulate as a result of the Formula E is enormously valuable for the further development of electrotechnology. “The experiences gained from the Formula E are extremely important for us. In the work we do together, and thanks to the ongoing discussions and the direct competition, we learn a lot that we can later apply to mass production,“ says Prof. Gutzmer. The Formula E helps to better understand the technology and set new benchmarks in the development of innovative sustainable technologies.

      "The formula e series stands for progressive thinking and innovative sustainable technologies. These are factors that we identify strongly with and that play an important role in our corporate culture."
