Formula E will race in Britain for the first time since 2016 as the series announced plans to revive its London Eprix in a new multi-year deal.
The new track, which will host the final two races of the 2019-20 season, will run around the Royal Victoria Dock and incorporate an indoor section running through the ExCel centre. The 23-turn course will also run alongside the Thames waterfront.
“I’m extremely excited to be bringing the ABB FIA Formula E Championship and electric racing back to the UK,” said Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag.
“Every motorsport series would love to host an event in London – this has been our desire for quite some time now and we’re delighted to have found a new home at the ExCeL.”
The London round will take over from New York as the current venue for the championship’s season finale. The current Formula E season will conclude at the Brooklyn-based circuit in July.
Formula E’s first visit to London in 2015 saw a home win for Sam Bird. Sebastien Buemi won the weekend’s opening race but lost the championship to Nelson Piquet Jnr. The following year Buemi clinched the title in the London double-header while team mate Nicolas Prost won both races.
