The ABB FIA Formula E Championship has officially launched its ghost racing mobile game for smartphones and tablet devices.
The ghost racing game was initially announced in partnership with Virtually Live in June last year and has become available for free on the iOS and Android store ahead of this weekend's Paris E-Prix.
FE claims 'Virtually Live Ghost Racing: Formula E' is "revolutionising fan participation and in-play options compared to other sporting disciplines".
The ghost racing game works by mirroring the exact location and movement of the drivers on track with the use of "innovative telemetry", alongside a physics engine that produces the on and off-track look of the game.
FE has promised "engaging live commentary" and detailed graphics, while the game will also allow customisation in the form of "personalised" cars with varying set-up and tuning options.
The game will also feature the opportunity for fans to recreate moments from FE's past, race in custom scenarios and challenge rivals online in a time-attack form.
FE's founder and CEO Alejandro Agag said the real-time racing product had been a long-term goal since the series' inception.
"Before we launched the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, I promised that one day our fans will be able to race against their favourite drivers in real time, making them a part of the racing more than ever before and now this dream is a reality," said Agag.
"I want to thank Virtually Live for all their hard work and support over the years in creating this innovation in gaming and I can't wait to see the game in action live at the Paris E-Prix tomorrow."
The game also allows fans to watch the race unfold from the driver cockpit as part of a second-screen offering.
