Ready for some real racing action in the heart of London? Yep, so are we. After the ABB FIA Formula E Championship first raced around Battersea Park in 2015, motor racing makes a welcome return to the British capital. With one year to go, here's all you need to know about the the 2020 London E-Prix on July 25 & 26.
Roll up, roll up to ExCeL London for the chance to buy tickets. Celebrating the countdown to the London E-Prix, a pop-up event space can be found at the West entrance of ExCeL London, where fans can learn all about the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, what to expect at the event and buy tickets ahead of the first release.
Created by car customiser and personality Yiannimize, a bespoke, Union Jack liveried Gen2 car was revealed one year out to mark the occasion. With 250kW of power, Formula E's 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.
Racing around the city's iconic Royal Docks and ExCeL London exhibition centre, the race will be the first time that an FIA-sanctioned championship event has taken place in and around the streets of London - with Crystal Palace hosting non-championship races in Formula 1 almost half a century ago.
Consisting of 20 corners, the 2.4km track will see the drivers run along the waterfront for the season finale double-header of the 2019/20 campaign on July 25 & 26, 2020.
With 24 all-electric cars going head-to-head, the London race will be a first for top-level international motorsport. Made possible by the emissions-free nature of the Gen2 cars, the unique track weaves its way both inside and outside of ExCeL London.
The London race will also be the first time that German car giants Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche line-up for a major motorsport event in the UK. With Audi and BMW already present, both Porsche and Mercedes-Benz join the Championship as full manufacturer teams at the beginning of the 2019/20 season.
Standing as a home E-Prix for British teams Envision Virgin Racing and Panasonic Jaguar Racing, the London race could see all four British Formula E drivers go head-to-head on home turf.
