E-Racing in Switzerland

Electric car race in Bern draws a crowd and some fly with virtual reality.



The Julius Baer Swiss E-Prix 2019, “the world’s most prestigious championship for electric race cars,” recently zoomed through Bern, a future-focused city in Switzerland. At the E-Prix event, global biotechnology leader CSL Behring and water company ewb, shared a booth, where visitors raced cars on a miniature track and tested Birdly®, a virtual reality experience that sent them flying high above the city. Bern, along the Aare River, is home to one of CSL Behring’s leading-edge sites that develops and manufactures medicines for people who have rare and serious diseases.
