The Berlin ePrix 2016 will take place on a new bespoke track in the heart of the German capital with the pitlane on Karl-Marx-Allee on May 21.
Formula E is a ground-breaking FIA championship and the world’s first fully-electric racing series. It represents a vision for the future of the motor industry, serving as a framework for research and development around the electric vehicle, accelerating general interest in these cars and promoting sustainability. The first season began in Beijing in September 2014 and completed in London in June 2015, racing in 10 major cities (11 races) around the world. The championship sees nine teams, each with two drivers, going head-to-head to create a unique and exciting racing series designed to appeal to a new generation of motorsport fans. Season two got underway in October in Beijing with the series becoming an ‘open championship’ allowing approved manufacturers to develop new powertrain solutions. In season two, races will take place in Beijing, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Paris, Berlin and London among others. With names like Senna, Prost and Piquet behind the wheel and teams such as Andretti, Audi Sport ABT, Renault and Virgin Racing and team owners like Leonardo DiCaprio, the championship attained a level of credibility to rival the best championships in the world.
