Hmm... they are getting rid of the race car driver, and putting an autonomous car on the race track instead of in the video game. Wonder how this will turn out?

The first Roborace ‘shows’ will take place during the 2016/2017 Formula E season, the first will be Faraday Future Long Beach ePrix on the streets of Long Beach with innovative new formats showcasing safety and extreme driving capabilities.

In partnership with Kinetik, Formula E plans for Roborace to become a competitive platform for autonomous driving solutions and technologies.

“Roborace is aimed to take place prior to each Formula E race, using the same circuits in major cities across the world,” a statement reads.

“Ten teams, each with two driverless cars, will compete in one-hour races over the full championship season. All the teams will have the same cars however will compete using real-time computing algorithms and AI technologies.
