Formula E will return to London in 2020

6 March 2019

Formula E-Prix is returning to London in 2020 and will take place around the Royal Docks and ExCel London as part of a multi-year agreement.

The ABB FIA Formula E Championship will return to the capital once again following its success in 2015 and 2016, when it took place around Battersea Park.

In 2020 the drivers will navigate their way around a one-of-a-kind track indoor/outdoor 2.4km clockwise circuit around Royal Victoria Dock. Consisting of 23 corners, the track layout will see the drivers run along the Thames waterfront for the season finale double-header of the 2019/20 campaign on July 25 & 26 – subject to circuit homologation and approval of the FIA World Motor Sport Council.

“I’m extremely excited to be bringing the ABB FIA Formula E Championship and electric racing back to the UK,” said the series’ Founder and 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.

“We have a growing base of knowledgeable and passionate fans in the UK, and this race adds to a fantastic summer of sport as a world-class event we hope Londoners can be proud of.

“Formula E coming back to the UK extends beyond pure racing excitement, it’s also a strong message for London to tackle inner-city air pollution by promoting clean technologies and electric sustainable mobility.”

Jeremy Rees, Chief Executive of ExCeL London said: “It’s an honour to welcome the world’s first ever indoor and outdoor race to ExCeL London and the Royal Docks.”

“I’m absolutely delighted to see the return of Formula E to London. This innovative race series will be welcomed by fans throughout the country,” added David Richards, Chairman of Motorsport UK.
