The FIA Formula E Championship has revealed the circuit location and layout for the March 14, 2015, Miami ePrix.
FIA’s Formula E Championship is the world’s first fully-electric racing series.
The eight-turn, 1.35-mile (2.17 kilometers) circuit is located in Downtown Miami, Florida, along Biscayne Bay around the streets of the AmericanAirlines Arena. Produced by track design company Ayesa, it is the setting for the fifth race in the inaugural Formula E season and the first of two events to be held in the US.
All Formula E events take place in one-day in order to minimize disruption to the city. Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag, speaking at a press conference held at the Pérez Art Museum of Miami
“We’re delighted to be officially unveiling the circuit for the Miami ePrix, the host for round five of the FIA Formula E Championship,” said Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag, speaking at a press conference held at the Pérez Art Museum of Miami. “Having two races in the US is very important to us with America’s rich motorsport heritage and the States being such an influential and burgeoning market for electric vehicles.”
Formula E added the race will be organized in collaboration with event company Andretti Sports Marketing.
“I’m excited that we are serving as the event organiser for the 2015 Miami Formula E race,” said Chief Executive Officer Michael Andretti. “We at Andretti Sports Marketing are committed to making this event a world class experience and we anticipate a long and great relationship with Formula E.”
