Formula E makes its way back to London in 2020 and is set to feature a unique track

London will play host to the grand finale of the 2019-2020 Formula E season. The sport will bring a double header race to the British capital and a one-of-a-kind indoor-to-outdoor track spanning 2.4 kilometres will play host to the sport’s unique vehicles.

On the 25th and 26th July 2020, Formula E will make its return to the city at the ExCel Exhibition Centre, and the unique track will feature a track that will make its way through the cavernous interior of the London landmark and along the streets beside the river Thames.

“We’re delighted to have found a home in the Royal Docks at ExCel London London,” said Formula E founder and chief executive Alejandro Agag.

“We have a growing base of knowledgeable and passionate fans in the UK, and this race adds to a fantastic summer of sport as a world-class event we hope Londoners can be proud of. Formula E coming back to the UK extends beyond pure racing excitement, it’s also a strong message for London to tackle inner-city air pollution by promoting clean technologies and electric sustainable mobility.”

“It’s an honour to welcome the world’s first ever indoor and outdoor race to ExCeL London and the Royal Docks,” added ExCeL London chief executive Jeremy Rees. “Events at ExCeL are thriving and London provides the perfect backdrop to host global entertainment brands, such as Formula E.

“Hosting this event is also closely aligned with our vision to create a more sustainable venue, in the heart of one of the most exciting destinations and best connected cities in the world.”

New York currently plays host to the series season finale for Formula E, and is set to return to London three years after the British capital held the Grand Prix in 2016.
