The city of Paris will host the first European round of the 2015/16 Formula E season. The Paris ePrix will take place on 23rd April on a temporary track designed by Electric Formula and built around the architectural complex of Les Invalides.
The French city therefore joins other world capitals such as Beijing, London, Buenos Aires, Berlin and Moscow and other outstanding locations on the calendar for the second season which was published at today’s FIA World Council meeting, taking place in Mexico City.
Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag sees this as a significant step forward in the globalisation of the series: “Staging a Formula E race in the heart of Paris is undoubtedly a landmark in the development of our series. I am particularly pleased that a city that is so involved in energy transition and sustainable development will organise a round of the championship. The splendid setting of Les Invalides will deliver a unique and futuristic spectacle in an historic venue, making this French leg a real highlight of the championship.”
TAG Heuer is very proud to be apart of this exciting championship and will be present in Paris for the start of the 2016 Formula E season on April !
