ROME HUMMING OVER ELECTRIC RACERS: Italy's capital, Rome, has been booked as the second city to host life-sized Scalextric racing in 2014. This is one of the McLaren prototypes.,

ROME, Italy - The streets of Rome will be the backdrop for a race in the new Formula E World championship in 2014.

The series is being backed by McLaren, which is supplying the racing battery cars, and has the full backing of motorsport's governing body, the International Automobile Federation.

10 RACES PLANNED

Federation president Jean Todt said: "It gives me great pleasure to be in Rome for this exciting announcement that the Eternal City has expressed firm interest to host a race in the Formula E 2014 championship calendar.

"The contrast between this innovative motorsport series and the ancient history of Rome is one by which I am sure the public and the media will be intrigued and enriched."

Rome is the second city to welcome the Formula E championship; Rio de Janeiro announced its support in August 2012.

The championship will have 10 urban races.
