Formula E will electrify the Italian streets for the first ever street race in Rome this April.
The newly-designed track follows parts of the unused F1 circuit layout which had been proposed for the 2012 Rome Grand Prix, but never came to pass. The new addition to the Formula E track roster will take place in the Esposizione Universale Roma financial district, a Roman district originally developed for the 1942 world fair.
Clocking in at a lengthy 2.86km, the Circuto Cittadino dell’EUR is the second longest track (after Marrakesh) we have yet seen in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. Nelson Piquet Jr. electrified the streets of Rome in the I-TYPE 2 late last year to launch the Rome E-Prix, commenting that the lengthy, technical course will be a challenging but special race.
