Formula E and DFB-Pokal: A weekend of sports superlatives for Audi and the Würth Elektronik eiSos Group

  • Formula E race on home soil for Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler in Berlin
  • Electric racing series live on ARD before DFB-Pokal Final

DFB-Pokal Final and Formula E in Berlin: The Pentecost weekend this year will be one of superlatives for sports enthusiasts and fans of the Audi and the Würth Elektronik eiSos Group brand.

For Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler, the Berlin E-Prix is on the agenda on Saturday, May 19. It will be the first race on home soil for Audi in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship since Audi entered the innovative racing series with a factory-backed commitment. “Accordingly, we have high expectations and are very excited about the event,” says Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass. “The seats in the grandstands in Berlin have been sold out for weeks, which shows the overwhelming interest in Formula E.” A large number of Audi employees are going to travel to Berlin-Tempelhof as well to keep their fingers crossed for the two Audi drivres, Daniel Abt and title defender Lucas di Grassi.

Formula E will visit Berlin for the fourth time on the Pentecost weekend. Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi have clinched four podiums at Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler’s home round to date, both having scored a second place as their best results in Berlin.

For the first time, a Formula E race in Germany will be broadcast live on ARD Channel One. The Berlin E-Prix will start on Sunday, May 20, at 6 PM directly before the DFP-Pokal Final between Audi’s partner FC Bayern München and Eintracht Frankfurt at the nearby Olympic Stadium, so spectators at the venue and TV viewers will have the opportunity to watch both sporting highlights.
