The Formula E Race at Home Challenge (formally the ABB Formula E Race at Home Challenge in support of UNICEF) is a series of esports events held as a temporary replacement of the suspended 2019–20 Formula E season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The series is run on the platform of rFactor 2.[1] This virtual tournament is broadcast on various Formula E social channels along with selected television partners.[5]

British racing driver Charlie Martin was announced as the first guest participant in the Race at Home Challenge, and will occupy a permanent guest role for the entirety of the series. As such, she becomes the first transgender driver to be affiliated with FIA Formula E and joins a host of other female drivers who have either competed in the series or who have participated in test events.

Daniel Abt had all his points taken away after the Berlin race as he was found to have used professional gamer, Lorenz Horzing in his place. Abt additionally paid £8,900 (10,000 Euros) to charity.[6] Horzing was banned from the Challenge grid outright.[7] Abt was later suspended and released by Audi.[8]

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ Originally it was the final ten.[1]
  2. ^ Drivers who failed to pre-qualify for any given round are not listed here. Those who already made it into the championship, but failed to pre-qualify for any given round, are only listed in the Challenge Grid standings as "did not pre-qualify" (DNPQ). This only includes those drivers who actually entered the pre-qualifying stage of that round. Drivers who did pre-qualify for any given round, but did not enter it, are only listed in the Challenge Grid standings as "did not participate" (DNP) and also in the Replacements subsection.
  3. ^ Guest drivers had been invited to the championship without the need to pre-qualify for the rounds they entered. They are also ineligible for points.
  4. ^ Vergne was penalised after the race and did not receive any points.
