Event: End of season gala dinner and prize giving
Series: FIA Formula E
Location: The British Museum, London, UK
Date: 3 July 2016
When Formula E organisers throw a fancy party, they do it in remarkable style. Cue a black tie event at London’s world-renowned British Museum immediately following the final race of the season, around Battersea Park. It was fitting to celebrate the achievement of the sport’s second ever season in a place dedicated to chronicling human history, art and culture. The electric racing series is attempting to create global change in the way people use transport and, in so doing, create cleaner air and more liveable cities for future generations.
The Spacesuit Media team has worked very closely with Formula E organisers all through the 2015-16 season, charged with capturing all VIP, hospitality and fan activity at trackside as well as these sorts of glamorous events. As the season finale, this event had to go without hitch, including editing and supplying photos to Getty immediately after the event finished. That meant working into the small hours of the morning for Shiv Gohil, Nat Twiss and Marta Rovatti Studihrad. The results speaks for themselves.
