The September issue of Race Tech focuses on the forthcoming FIA Formula E Championship that commences in Beijing in September. The magazine asks whether this brave new world is going to be a Freak Show or is it really the Future. There is also an in-depth analysis of the car by renowned journalist Craig Scarborough. Formula One is also heavily featured. “F1 hasn’t worked” were the words uttered by Tony Fernandes before selling Caterham F1. Matt Youson looks at why he became disenchanted and whether Formula One is likely to change. Williams’ chief technical officer Pat Symonds is interviewed in an article about the Symonds X-Factor while another F1 article looks at the back end of the grid where Sabuer F1 and Marussia F1 are fighting it out for 10th place in this year’s championship and what it means in financial terms. On the new car front, the Chris Pickering talks to Peugeot technical director Bruno Famin about the dramatic 2008 DKR which is tasked with taking the French carmaker to the Dakar rally raid as well as to major rallies in China and Russia. At the other end of the scale is a report from the recent Formula Student event at Silvestone, a special report on lubricants and how to create an aero map from logged data in Practical Racer.
