The 2017/18 FIA Formula E
Championship calendar has been revealed following the FIA World Motor Sport
Council (WMSC) meeting in Geneva. The calendar features a more compact
schedule, including three double-headers and three new venues - Santiago, Sao
Paulo and Rome. The fourth edition of the world’s first fully-electric
singleseater racing series comprises the most races to appear on the calendar
since its inception in 2014.
The Formula E cars will take
to the track in the season-opener in Hong Kong for a second year running on
December 2 & 3 - the first double-header to take place in Asia. Formula E
will stop at new locations in both South America and Europe - with races in the
Chilean capital of Santiago in February, a first race in Brazil on the streets
of Sao Paulo in March, and Rome in mid-April.
The electric street racing
series will also be returning to the French capital for the third edition of
the Paris ePrix on April 28, building on the success of the previous two events
to be held around Les Invalides.
The penultimate event sees
Formula E return to New York against the backdrop of Lower Manhattan and the
Statue of Liberty, with the season coming to a close once again over the course
of two days in Montreal on July 28 & 29.
