Monaco, 05/13/17

Length: 1.76 km, Corners: 12

Circuit de Monaco:

On the Côte d’Azur, the season’s shortest circuit awaits the Formula E drivers. Covering a distance of 1.76 kilometers, the circuit near the harbor winds its way through the densely populated principality. The starting grid and finish line are the same ones used for the legendary Formula One circuit. Competitors must also negotiate time-honored challenges such as the Tabac and Piscine corners. #MonacoePrix


Paris, 05/20/17

Length: 1.93 km, Corners: 14

Circuit des Invalides:

The circuit near the River Seine leads around the Hôtel des Invalides, passing Napoleon’s tomb. Always visible in the background: the world-famous symbol of Paris, the Eiffel Tower. Along the two straights, cars can reach top speeds of up to 200 kilometers per hour. #ParisePrix


Berlin, 06/10–06/11/17

Length: 2.25 km, Corners: 10


In the 2014/2015 inaugural season, races started on the site of the former Tempelhof Airport. A year later, the event switched to Karl-Marx-Allee, not far from Alexanderplatz. Now Formula E returns to Tempelhof Airport. The track layout is strongly modified. In addition to long straight the course has a very technical infield.#BerlinePrix


New York City, 07/15–07/16/17

Length: 1.947 km, Corners: 13

Red Hook:

Toward the end of the season, Formula E travels to The City That Never Sleeps to become the first FIA racing series to achieve what has eluded the Formula One series for decades. With Wall Street at their backs and a view of the Statue of Liberty ahead, the drivers will once more push their cars to the limit in Brooklyn. A mix of speed, hairpin bends and a narrow infield directly on the water. #NYCePrix


Montreal, 07/29–07/30/17

Length: 2.75 km, Corners: 14

St. Lawrence River:

The Canadian city of Montreal is the venue for the season finale. Along the banks of the St. Lawrence River, racecars will compete on a circuit leading around the “Maison de Radio-Canada” skyscraper owned by the na­tional broadcasting corporation. The 2.75-kilometer circuit includes numerous 90-degree bends. An additional highlight on this weekend will be the city’s 375th birthday.#MontrealePrix
