The ballot to secure tickets for the very first Tokyo E-Prix on Formula E's maiden visit to Japan is open, with ticket sales for fans overseas scheduled to begin on 1 February.
Fans can choose up to five options as to which tickets they would like and enter the ballot where tickets will be randomly distributed. If they are successful in the ballot, fans will be notified by the end of January. A limited amount of tickets will be made available for unsuccessful applicants and visitors from other countries in the general sale.
The full circuit layout for Tokyo E-Prix
The challenging 18-turn, 2.582km street circuit will surround the Tokyo International Exhibition Centre – the largest venue in Japan also known as Tokyo Big Sight – only minutes from downtown Tokyo.
The track includes three long straights, technical sequences of tight corners, and high-speed combinations set against the stunning Tokyo metropolis backdrop. Formula E’s track design experts are confident the circuit will deliver a challenge for the 22 drivers in the series, while providing maximum excitement and entertainment for fans at the race and TV viewers tuning-in around the world.
The paddock area, featuring the garages where teams and drivers prepare the GEN3 race cars and plan racing strategy, will be located on the Tokyo Bay waterfront.
The inaugural Formula E race in Tokyo will boost the use of ZEVs in Tokyo, and is the first time that public roads in Tokyo will be closed for a public road race and world championship event.
As with Formula E races held in iconic city centres around the world, such as London, Berlin and Mexico City, the Tokyo E-Prix will offer fans excellent public transport connections to the event, a key feature of Formula E’s industry-leading sustainability credentials.
