Now Paris has officially a Formula E circuit



Even though we already had three events of sheer action for the 2015/2016 FIA Formula E season, there were races with unfinished matters, like the confirmation of the Mexico City ePrix, the decisions around the continuity of the London ePrix in the Battersea Park area, the location of the Berlin ePrix and of the Paris ePrix. At least on the French side, things were settled this Wednesday (13).

After some good months after the announcement of the Paris ePrix, which in fact substitutes the Monaco ePrix in the French area, will have a circuit with 1,93 kilometers of length and 14 turns, going around the Les Invalides complex. Although the track has some sharp turns in it, the main straight area in special may bring some interesting fights for positions. Another curious detail in the Paris street circuit is the pit area that crosses the Esplanade des Invalides and it doesn't necessarily follow the track line. If you, dear Paris citizen or visitor, expected to see the ePrix from the Eiffel Tower, the track will be a bit away from it.

With five drivers and a team involved in Formula E being French, the country will have an incredible presence in the race, with the bets concentrating on Renault e.DAMS with Nicolas Prost as well Loïc Duval, Stéphane Sarrazin, Jean-Éric Vergne and Nathanël Berthon.

The Paris ePrix will be held on April 23rd. If you want a 3D view of the track, the Formula E staff left a video in their Facebook page as a demonstration:
