Hong Kong central harbourfront circuit

Track guide –HKT Hong Kong ePrix

Number of turns – 10

Track length – 1.860km

Past winners – Sebastien Buemi

Qualifying record – 1:03.099 - Nelson Piquet Jr

Lap record – 1:02.947 - Felix Rosenqvist 

A new addition to the FIA Formula E championship, the HKT Hong Kong ePrix is well and truly sparking the 2016/17 season into life. The circuit races around the streets of the central harbourfront against the stunning backdrop of the Hong Kong skyline, with famous landmarks such as the Observation Wheel coming into vision whilst the drivers are battling for a chance to put their name in the history books. For one driver, Techeetah’s Ma Qing Hua, this race is not only special for the championship, but a chance to give his local fans something to cheer about.

Practice makes perfect

In terms of balance there are still some things we need to set up but as it was shakedown we didn’t really push so it’s difficult to say how the car actually will be for qualifying and the race. We will really see in the morning session.

New beginnings

It takes a bit of time. The best overtaking spot I think is down into turn 1. The track is short and during the day the surface is changing because more cars are running and there is rubber whereas with a clear track you can obviously push a bit more. The grip level is also changing throughout the day so you are always learning.

Home comforts

I love this city. For me Hong Kong being in the season three calendar feels like a home race and I love the food here and of course the people. The race location is fantastic – I’m really happy to be racing in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong City Guide

History: From its earliest days as a British colony, Hong Kong served as a centre of international trade. In the turbulent years of the early 20th century, the city’s population was bolstered by refugees, mostly from China. The arrival of immigrants in large numbers helped launch a new role for Hong Kong as a major manufacturing hub. It also brought economically stimulating energy and industry to the city’s character. In recent decades, as the economy of Mainland China has undergone a process of opening up, Hong Kong has transformed yet again – this time into a service-based economy as well as an important gateway to the world’s largest market. – Hong Kong Tourist Board

Culture: Hong Kong has two main languages, Chinese and English, as well as Cantonese. The Currency is the Hong Kong Dollar. The City has a population of more than 7.3 Million people across all various languages and religions. Hong Kong is UTC + 8. Temperature wise, in October the average temperature is 27.8C/82F.

Where to eat – If you love oriental cuisine, you’re in for a real treat in Hong Kong. In Central there are over 570 restaurants.

  • If you are looking for some International cuisine whilst in town, check out Braza Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse. Ranked the no. 1 restaurant in Central on TripAdvisor.
  • Calling all Dim Sum fans, Ding Dim 1968 is the only place for you! Plus, it is very reasonably priced.
  • If you are looking to spend a little bit more, then Ho Lee Fook offers incredible atmosphere and out of this world chicken wings.
  • Enjoy Indian food? Love an open kitchen? Why not try Bombay Dreams!

Where to drink – The best place for an aperitif? 

  • Try M Bar, a rooftop bar with a view of the city.
  • If cocktails are your thing, then make your way towards Quinary
  • Le Boudoir is a stylish and hidden basement bar in Central.
  • Looking for a rock bar? Check out Rockabilly.

What to do - Thanks to the incredible location of the track, any Formula E fans staying nearby and looking for something to do, we recommend checking out:

  • Take a spin on the Hong Kong Observation Wheel
  • Make a visit to the Hong Kong Park
  • Check out Hollywood Road if you like your shopping
  • Pay a visit to the International Finance Centre

During the weekend of the HKT Hong Kong ePrix, there will activities, left, right and centre on and off the track. With something on offer for the whole family. The ePrix takes place on Sunday October 9th around the Central Harbour in Hong Kong.

Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez

Circuit Guide

The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez has held numerous races from Formula 1 to the World Endurance Championship during its illustrious history and many different configurations. A brand new, 2.1km layout was created for the arrival of Formula E in 2016. At over 2500m, the track is the highest in Formula E – and one of the highest in the world. It was also the first time that a Formula E race took place on a ‘permanent’ road course. In the race Lucas di Grassi won on the road but was disqualified for being underweight, handing victory to Dragon Racing’s Jerome D’Ambrosio.

Driver's Guide
Salvador Duran, former Team Aguri driver 

“The first complex and approach to turn one looks like a very interesting corner, a very fast chicane. The second part where you exit, you’re already into another corner, you’re already into the oval and the normal part of the circuit. It’s going to be quite interesting to see how the drivers manage to exit with as much speed as they can. Turn four looks like a very slow corner to the right and then you get a lot of change in direction as you go through another left corner which is practically a U-turn. You have to be very careful on the exit as well because after that you have the straight before entering into the stadium.

I love it because there is one part that is actually a stadium. The configuration of the track means that we go through there on two occasions and I think all the people there are going to be so excited because being in the stadium, the excitement is going to be contagious! I really like that part and the other point is that we have so many grandstands along the start/finish straight and over the pits as well. It looks like it’s going to be very challenging. The best overtaking spot I’ve seen will be the entry into the stadium, that’s going to be the most interesting bit.

The fans here are really loud! They are really passionate. They are really excited about what we can offer because they really want to see a car running. I would say they don’t quite understand and even the media doesn’t understand Formula E cars. That’s why it’s going to be so good when we get there and show them what we have. It’s not only about the car, it’s also about the show Formula E brings to every single place it goes to.”

Circuit des Invalides

Qatar Airways Paris ePrix Circuit Guide

Paris - The City of Light – is one of the most famous in the world. France is the country where motorsport as we know it today was created and the city itself is part of that history. At just 1.9 kilometres, the track is the shortest used in season two, although the Monaco track used in season one was shorter. The race takes place around the historic Les Invalides complex, where a sold-out crowd will have plenty of local heroes to cheer on.

Driver's Guide
Loic Duval, Faraday Future Dragon Racing

 “I joined the series last year in the middle of the season and I saw the calendar for this year and I was thinking, of course you expect Formula E to go to city-centres, in the best cities around the world, and you really wanted Formula E to be in Paris. I think it’s well deserved for the city, and the championship to be able to race here. To have a sports event in the city-centre is always positive, to bring the race to the people. When the red lights go out, it’s our turn as racing drivers to make the show a little bit special.

“It looks quite quick in some areas with medium and high-speed corners. Some areas look a bit tricky with really tight corners so there’s always going to be a way to manage the set-up between the fast parts and slow corners, that’s going to be something special. It looks like there are two long straights and a lot of opportunities to overtake to fight with the other guys, it looks really promising.

“I think with the experience of the Formula E guys and the organisation, we’ve been to tracks before where it’s been really difficult to drive, I remember Moscow last year and London and they’ve always managed to find a solution and now they have even more experience. In France we even have a famous cycling race which is the Paris-Roubaix, and there are these kinds of roads. In a way also, if it was possible to have these kinds of difficulties, it would make the race more special and the track more special, we’ll see how it ends up.”

Hydro-Québec Montréal ePrix

Nelson Piquet Jr's track guide

The start-finish line is really bumpy but it’s quite a good straight. Turn 1 and Turn 2 are really difficult to see because of track but it seems like straight-forward corners but the really interesting part are Turn 3, 4 and 5. Turn 3 you start going really uphill towards Turn 4 and Turn 5 it’s like a big downhill, this is like going up into the Casino in Monaco kind of thing, not as high but it’s a really good bit of elevation.

The track looks pretty big, it’s a much bigger track than what we are used to. It’s at least 2.5km I would say. It’s a clear track that has elevation, a lot of low speeds, high speeds and a lot of overtaking places, into Turn 11 seems likely and into Turn 1 for sure. It’s going to be a bigger track, seems to be really quick with fast straight line speeds.
