Our Story

It could have been in a garage like many other (Californian) ventures…but actually it was at a restaurant in Middle East where Frédéric Vasseur, Alejandro Agag and Jean Todt first gave birth to the idea of the Formula E championship. From there on, every partner has taken its fair share of the development of the new Racing Championship. Spark was at the very start of the engineering and development of the all-new racing single-seaters that took part in Season 1 of Formula E in 2014 and there on.
