The FIA Formula E Championship has wrapped up a highly successful first season, which spurred many technical advances and introduced thousands around the world to the capabilities of EVs. Now the FIA has announced the calendar for Formula E’s second season.
There will be 11 races in 10 cities, with London hosting two. The first race will take place October 17th, 2015, in Beijing. Paris is a new addition to the tour – EVs will scream around the historic Les Invalides on April 23rd. The venue for the fifth round is yet to be chosen.
In August, there will be three two-day test sessions at Donington Park in the UK, which will be open to media and the public.
“We have received many indications of interest from numerous cities from all over the world, which is another confirmation of the extraordinary reception that Formula E has received,” said Alejandro Agag, CEO of Formula E. “We have chosen to keep the number of races the same, with the aim of planting even more solid roots in the cities which trusted in us right from the start. We have added one of the world’s most important capitals and an amazing city, Paris, which will be one of the highlights of the season. As for the location of the fifth round, the one on 19th March, we are working to maintain the same geographic allocation of races: the aim is to have a fourth ePrix on the American continent.”
