Cassidy: ‘There’s no question Accelerate will be a baptism of fire’

The Open Qualifiers for Formula E: Accelerate, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship’s new esports series, are well underway and Envision Virgin Racing new boy Nick Cassidy is getting his eye in ahead of stiff competition from the Formula E grid and some of the best sim racers around. “There are a lot of names setting times and it’s such a great platform for people that want to get into sim racing professionally, or for people already involved to get a global championship like Formula E on their CV. “Neither the sim racers or the pro drivers have had a chance to experience ATTACK MODE and the energy management system in the game and it’s going to be all new from where we were in the Race at Home Challenge,” continued the 26-year-old. “It’ll be interesting to see how the sim racers get on with the energy management aspect. “The sim racers will have to work on all that themselves, so there’ll be a fair bit of preparation involved and a lot of strategy involved. “There are always going to be differences between the sim and reality,” said Cassidy.
