Formula E and the FIA have revealed the final calendar for the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, with the series set to race in 12 of the world’s leading cities – featuring a record nine capitals and three new locations in Seoul, Jakarta and London.
The busiest season yet was formally approved following the recent FIA World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) meeting in Cologne, Germany.
The Diriyah E-Prix kicks off the season once again on November 22 & 23, which will see a capacity grid of 24-cars for the first time in Formula E.
The most competitive line-up in motorsport then moves to South and Central America for the Santiago E-Prix and the Mexico City E-Prix, with the Marrakesh E-Prix replacing Hong Kong for round five of the 2019/20 calendar.
Sanya fills the slot for round six on March 21 before the start of the European races with the third running of the Rome E-Prix on April 4, followed by the Paris E-Prix in the French capital against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower on April 18.
Formula E then touches down in South Korea for the first time on May 3 for the Seoul E-Prix, ahead of the most recent race to be announced – the inaugural Jakarta E-Prix – taking place on June 6.
Being the only city to have featured in each season of the Formula E Championship, the Berlin E-Prix will once again be held at the historic Tempelhof Airport on June 21.
Three weeks later, Formula E crosses the Atlantic to the Big Apple for the penultimate event of the season in New York City.
The season then concludes in London across a two-day season finale showdown at ExCeL London on July 25 & 26.
