The so-called Grid Kids are the small stars at the E races within the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.
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 it will be right beside «his» 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?
