McKenzie Arnold will work with the organisers to create a secure environment for the teams and drivers in Patrajaya.

The line-up of drivers includes ex-F1 racers Jaime Alguersuari and Bruno Senna with more being announced as the first race draws near.
For more than 20 years McKenzie Arnold has established its commitment as a security provider to the motorsport industry. Martin Jackson, managing director said: “After 20 years working in Motorsport including Formula One and MotoGP it’s extremely exciting and very flattering to be involved in the world’s first Formula E Championship.”
For season one, each team will run four Spark-Renault SRT_01E Formula E cars, two per driver, with the cars/teams based at a purpose built central workshop at Donnington Park. McKenzie Arnold have been awarded the contract to provide 24 hour security of the factory during the off-season and are pleased to be working closely with FIA Formula E and Donnington Park.
