With our Grid Kids we bring out the small stars really big and offer an extra portion of adventure. If you are up for flashing cameras, adrenalin and a unique experience, then apply now as a Grid Kid.


Each race driver within the Formula E is accompanied by a Grid Kid. The most important task is happening right before the beginning of each race at the starting formation, holding up a sign with starting number and name of the driver as well as the team. This means you will be right beside «your» driver and his racing car in the very focus of all cameras and photographers.

There is more: The Grid Kids of the two top ranked drivers are allowed to join them at the award ceremony. Can you imagine?

And if this was not enough: Additionally, you and your family (parents and siblings) receive a grand stand ticket for free, to enjoy the whole race close by.

We want to make sure that this special experience will stay in your mind forever. Therefore, you will be able to take the Grid Kid uniform and the pictures of this extraordinary day as souvenirs back home with you.

The most creative applications will be presented on the event area by the way. So, make sure to look closely when you come to the Zurich E-Prix.
