That was exciting. Only in the last race of the season in Montreal the Brazilian, Lucas di Grassi won the championship 2017 in the FIA Formula-E. The former Formula 1 driver, Jean-Éric Vergne won the day’s victory. Formula E is a racing series for Formula cars with electric motors. At the race end of July, Bayferrox was also present.
The inorganic pigments from global specialty chemicals company LANXESS brought color to the race course at the Hydro-Québec Montréal ePrix. The Inorganic Pigments (IPG) business unit supplied nearly 37 metric tons of charcoal-colored Bayferrox 340 pigments to Canadian pre-cast concrete producer Beton Brunet based in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Québec, for the construction of 5.5 kilometers of concrete barriers that lined both sides of the 2.75 kilometer race course.
The race in Montréal was the last of the FIA Formula E circuit 2017’s third season that began in Hong Kong and toured eight other cities, including Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Paris, Berlin and New York. In motor sport, Formula E is a “sports platform for sustainability”.
