Screens to be set up to block views of the Hong Kong ePrix from public places

Posted in : News on by : Around DB Comments: 0

The Hong Kong police have advised would-be spectators of the Hong Kong ePrix to stay away if they do not have tickets.

In a press conference yesterday, San Tze-kin, assistant district commander of the Central district, said that the screens would be placed on footbridges and other spots where people may congregate to watch the race. Additional police officers will be deployed to “popular spots” to ensure that crowds do not gather.

San cited safety reasons for the decision, saying that “people leaning too close near the edge of a bridge may cause serious danger to people who are taking part in the races in case anything is dropped on the track.”

Car parks in the vicinity of the track will also be closed over the race weekend and the management companies of buildings in the area have been asked to tighten security measures.

The inaugural Formula E Hong Kong ePrix weekend begins at 10am Saturday October 8 and runs for two days.
