Good news is coming from Formula E in regards to the Long Beach, California ePrix scheduled for April 4.

The organizer have announced free entry for fans!

Judging by the number of electric cars in California, there will likely be lots of interest in the event.

"Formula E fans can enjoy free admission to the Long Beach ePrix along with a unique prize draw for those who register online.

The Long Beach ePrix will take place on Saturday April 4 2015 and forms one of 11 races on the calendar – and one of two in the US alongside Miami. Fans will get to watch a full day of track action with practice, qualifying and the race taking place in a single day combined with an array of off-track entertainment.

The track uses a modified configuration of the iconic Long Beach street circuit in South California, which is the longest running in the US, beginning in 1975 and hosting Formula One from 1976 to 1983 before staging annual CART, Champ Car and IndyCar races.

At 2.1km and featuring seven turns, the Formula E cars will use the same start/finish line adjacent to the Marina before heading off in a clockwise direction past the Rainbow Lagoon."
