Cape Town Street Circuit

The track will wind its way through Cape Town's Green Point and Waterfront districts, with the flowing lines of this new street circuit expected to be one of the fastest on the Season 9 calendar and a true test for the all-new 350kW Gen3 machine.

The 2.8km, 12-turn track will see the grid lined up at the start-line at the Green Point precinct’s Vlei Road, where the field of world-class drivers will race with Signal Hill as a backdrop.

Then it’s a left turn into Helen Suzman Boulevard; and another left into Granger Bay Boulevard, presenting the racers with two sharp chicanes. Drivers will then head along the oceanfront on Mouille Point’s Beach Road; before taking a sharp left-hander into Fritz Sonnenberg Road and; a final right to reach the finish line.

Wheel-to-wheel action comes to Cape Town

With the spectacular Table Mountain as a backdrop, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is set for its debut in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Mother City will become the first sub-Saharan African city to host a Formula E round when the series visits in Season 9. With breathtaking views as the circuit skirts around some of Cape Town's most famous locations, the track is expected to be a quick one that'll make full use of the all-new high-powered Gen3 machine.
