Race Format

  • 2 Days

    To keep fans entertained throughout the event and limit any potential disruption to waterways, E1 races will be held over the course of two days. The first day will mainly consist of shakedown and practice sessions, with the knockout heats and finale taking place on the second day.

    Most E1 events will be staged on a Friday and Saturday.

    12 Teams

    Up to 12 teams will compete in the UIM E1 World Championship, each battling it out to secure the coveted E1 title.

    The teams will race using identical RaceBird boats during the first two seasons of the championship, with regulations being opened up in future seasons to allow teams and manufacturers to develop their own electric technologies.

    24 Pilots

    Each team will choose two pilots to share driving duties throughout the event.

    The regulations set out by E1 and the UIM will mandate each team to select a mixed gender pilot line-up to ensure equal opportunities in the sport.

    The pilots will put their skills to the test using tight and technical short courses located close to the shore.

    1 Winner

    As always there can only be one winner in motor racing and the same also applies in E1.

    Teams and pilots will have to progress through a series of knockout heats to reach the finale where the eventual winner will be decided.

    Competitors will accumulate points over the course of the season to determine who will be crowned as E1 champions.
