Enter prize draw for ten pairs of Formula E tickets

Published: Friday 29th May 15

If you live in Wandsworth this is your chance to win free tickets to London’s first ever Formula E Grand Prix.

We have ten pairs of tickets to give away for the historic racing event which will take place in Battersea Park over the weekend of June 27 and 28.

PLEASE NOTE THE DEADLINE HAS PASSED AND THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.

The competition closes at 5pm on Monday 1 June and the winners will be picked at random the following day. Please note the competition is only open to people who live in Wandsworth.

Residents are allowed one entry each. Full competition T&Cs are available online.

The race weekend will see drivers compete in two races over a 1.8 mile circuit formed by the park’s perimeter roads.

Battersea will be joining Berlin, Beijing, Buenos Aires, Moscow, Miami and Monaco as venues for this exciting new global motor sport that’s already attracting huge worldwide interest.

Formula E racing cars use cutting edge electric motors that produce virtually no noise and no harmful emissions. They are pioneering the kind of battery technology that promises real advances in the next generation of electrically-powered family saloons.  

Wandsworth Council wants to promote this emerging technology and support the British motor racing industry which sustains thousands of UK engineering jobs.

Staging the London races here means that over the next five years an estimated £1m will be available to fund improvements to the park. In addition the race organisers have funded the resurfacing of the previously uneven and rutted Rosary car park and repaired other carriageway defects.

During the race weekend two sections of the park will be kept open for non-ticket holders so that they are able to visit while the races are being held.

As a regular user of Battersea Park I am appalled and disheartened that Wandsworth Council have given the go ahead for this event. People go to Battersea Park to enjoy the peace and quiet and to get away from cars and noise. As with Lambeth Council and their unsuitable events on Clapham Common, Wandsworth Council have given in to financial greed. Very sad and disappointing.

Thursday May 21st "These 2,000 complimentary tickets will be offered to residents who live near the park, including those from the Doddington, Ethelburga and Latchmere housing estates, and also to pupils who attend schools in the area, members of local amenity groups and some Battersea-based charities." Did WBC keep that promise?

What about the free tickets for local people that were mentioned in a news item that has now disappeared? Here there is only mention of ten pairs = 20 tickets. BIG DEAL WBC!
