The ABB FIA Formula E Championship returns once again to Hong Kong's iconic Harbourfront. Get ready to watch 22 Gen2 cars and drivers rip through downtown Hong Kong for the first round in Asia.
Immerse yourself in the Allianz E-Village - Formula E's dedicated fan festival devoted to exploring the racing series, experiencing the latest innovations and enjoying some of the best entertainment alongside all the racing action.
After one of the most spectacular season openers took place on Hong Kong's iconic Harbourfront last year, we're back again in the heart of Hong Kong for another round of wheel-to-wheel city street racing on March 10, 2019.
The 1.860km circuit races around the streets of the Hong Kong's Central Harbourfront, with landmarks such as the International Finance Centre, Hong Kong Observation Wheel and Hong Kong City Hall providing a spectacular backdrop.
Last season's doubleheader saw Envision Virgin Racing's Sam Bird clinch the very first victory of the season, while the Harbourfront had nothing but heartbreak in store for Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler's Daniel Abt, who was disqualified after finishing first in the second round, handing the victory to Mahindra Racing's Felix Rosenqvist. After Audi clinched the teams' championship title last season, will Abt make it count this time? Or will Bird bring it home again?

While the championship might be only five years old, the technology racing around the circuit is ever-changing. Season 5 will see 22 Gen2 cars racing around the track in anger for the very first time. The Batmobile-esque all-electric racer has double the energy storage capacity of the Gen1 car, meaning it can complete a whole race, so wave goodbye to mid-race car swaps. With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h.
Greater speeds, more action on track and with just one car per driver - there's everything to lose.
Jaguar is making history with the world’s first all-electric production based international race series. Beginning in season five of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY is the first official support race to the street racing series.
20 I-PACEs. 10 races. 1 winner.
With 20 production based Jaguar I-PACE race cars with identical specifications going head to head, it’s down to driver skill and team tactics to decide who will be crowned champion. Held over ten races and in some of the world’s most celebrated cities, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY championship promises to be the next exciting chapter in Jaguar’s Race to Innovate.
