Circuit: Formula E London ePrix
Location: Battersea Park, London
Date: Saturday, June 27 2015
Date: Sunday, June 28 2015
The London ePrix will encompass two races – Rounds 10 and 11 – taking place at Battersea Park on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 June. The 2.922km anti-clockwise circuit has been designed using the existing perimeter roads of the park and will see the 20 Formula E drivers tackle a mixture of fast straights, high-speed bends, challenging chicanes and braking zones. It has been designed by British architect Simon Gibbons who boasts nine years’ experience as a circuit planner for Formula One and more recently played a significant role in the rowing and canoeing venue for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. As the final two rounds of the inaugural 2014/2015 season, the London ePrix could well be where the championship title gets decided.

“I’m impressed with what I have seen so far. The track is in the beautiful Battersea Park, right next to the river Thames, just across from Chelsea and with some of the most famous features of London’s skyline in the background. The layout itself seems to combine fast straights, a couple of high-speed bends as well as some challenging chicanes and braking zones. I think the London ePrix spectators will be treated to some close, fast racing with plenty of action and overtaking. The organisers have done a good job with this layout and I can’t wait to race there, in front of my home crowd!”
