London

Why the timing is perfect for a radical London E-Prix return

Four years on from the last time London played host to a Formula E race, the UK capital will return to the calendar to host the 2019/20 season finale in a radical fashion.

FE has not been a series to follow convention, but it will be one of the first major categories to hold a race in a convention centre, with the new-look London E-Prix to be held on a partially-indoor circuit which will weave around the Royal Victoria Dock and through the ExCeL London building.

Liberty hit sweet spot with #F1LiveLondon

Following Tuesday’s Silverstone break clause bombshell that threatened to dampen this year’s British Grand Prix, F1 needed a tonic. What a difference a day makes, with Wednesday’s F1 Live in London event delivering a pre-race pick-me-up in some style.

Accessibility on an unprecedented scale, incredible noise and drivers allowed to express their personalities and share an incredible experience¬†with those who consider them superheroes. What’s not to love?
