London Formula E track unveiled ahead of season finale

Ahead of June’s season finale, London’s Formula E track has been officially unveiled within the confines of Battersea Park.

The pinnacle of electric car racing, the Formula E series is set to wrap up its debut season in our nation’s capital with two races across June 27 and 28.

Marking the final two rounds of the 11 race series, it has been confirmed the London Formula E track will consist of a 2.92km, 15 turn circuit specially created inside Battersea Park.

According to British Formula E racing driver, Sam Bird, the track “combines fast straights, a couple of high-speed bends, as well as some challenging chicanes and braking zones.”

The world’s first fully electric racing series, Formula E is being used to develop new electric car systems which will one day filter down into the consumer automotive space.

The series has been described as “a vision for the future of the motor industry” and a project that “serves as a framework for R&D around the electric vehicle, accelerating general interest in these cars and promoting clean energy and sustainability”.

Unveiling the London tack plans, Alejandro Agag, Formula E’s CEO, stated: “Having two races in London – the final two of the season – was an option we discussed at length with Wandsworth Council and means that London could well be where the inaugural champion is crowned.”

He added the sport’s presence in London will make “a fantastic spectacle for the city and a great platform to showcase sustainable mobility and clean energy.”

“Formula E is set to be a superb addition to London’s sporting calendar,” Mayor of London, Boris Johnson added. “The atmosphere will quite literally be electric and Battersea, which is already booming with the buzz of regeneration, will be alive with the excitement that this new, world-class event will no doubt spark.”
