LONDON – Formula E and FIA officials have revealed the full calendar for the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, featuring a new race venue and updates to previously scheduled events.
The season seven calendar is set to host more races than ever before in a single season, comprising of 15 races in eight cities, covering three continents.
The final set of races to be announced starts with a new location for the all-electric racing series, with the Puebla E-Prix in Mexico on June 19-20. The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship has moved location from the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City, which has previously hosted five Formula E races, because the circuit is still a temporary field hospital.
New York City will play host to rounds 10 and 11 of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, with the all-electric Gen2 cars racing in Red Hook, Brooklyn, set against the Manhattan skyline on July 10-11.
Formula E then returns to Europe for the London E-Prix using a unique indoor/outdoor track at the ExCeL London on July 24-25 for a doubleheader event, before heading to Berlin for the season finale doubleheader on Aug. 14-15.
The Marrakesh E-Prix and Santiago E-Prix, scheduled for May 22 and June 5-6 respectively, have been removed from the calendar this season due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Events in Santiago, Sanya and Seoul will be rescheduled for season eight with fans in attendance.
“It’s a massive achievement by all to release the full calendar for this season,” said Alberto Longo, co-founder and chief championship officer of Formula E. “The calendar includes the most races we’ve held in one season and shows our continued commitment to create a momentum-building schedule that fans and audiences across the world will follow. Four double-header events in Puebla, New York City, London and Berlin are going to set the scene perfectly to crown Formula E’s first official FIA World Champion.”
