Formula E have revealed the provisional 17-race schedule for Season 10 of the series, including an eye-catching first race around the capital of Japan.
The all-electric championship will visit Tokyo for the first time in March 2024, as part of a mouth-watering calendar that once again features big races in London, Rome and Berlin.
Two debutant venues in 2023 – Sao Paulo and Portland – will also return for next season, while advanced negotiations are ongoing with further venues yet to be announced.
“Tokyo will be a highlight of our historic tenth season,” said Jeff Dodds, Chief Executive Officer of Formula.
“We are also in advanced discussions with many more iconic world cities who are keen to host a Formula E race and create blockbuster world championship motorsport events with us.
“We expect this to be reflected in the updated calendar published later this year.”

The provisional calendar for Season 10 was published jointly by Formula E and the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), following ratification by the FIA World Motor Sport Council and with the support of local national sporting authorities for each host city.
The race in Tokyo on Saturday, 30 March 2024 will be the first FIA-sanctioned world championship motorsport event held in Tokyo, with the track set to go around the Big Sight convention centre on the Tokyo Bay waterfront.
“This calendar is an illustration of Formula E’s continuing growth and promises to treat fans to another season of superb racing with the new GEN3 car, which has already produced countless crowd-pleasing battles,” said Marek Nawarecki, Director of FIA Circuit Sport Department.
“The schedule offers an appealing blend of established Formula E favourites like Mexico City, Rome, Monaco, Berlin and London and popular recent additions such as São Paulo and Jakarta.
“We are also delighted that the championship will visit Japan for the first time. This will also increase the series presence and impact in Asia, which is important for many manufacturers.”
Meanwhile, Season 9 of the series continues this weekend – with Envision Racing looking to further enhance their challenges in both the Drivers’ and Teams’ Championships with a solid performance at the Portland International Raceway.
