Formula E arrives in Santiago, Chile on February 3 2018 for the first race of the Latin American leg of the season.
The Chilean capital will host an E-Prix for the very first time this year. The 2.47km circuit starts on Avenue Santa Maria and snakes through local parks and city blocks, crossing the ricer Mapocho twice in the process. Turns 2 through 5 encompass the famous Plaza Baquedano, a major landmark and part of the Chilean national identity, where locals go to celebrate sporting victories. Latin America has a long and rich history in motorsport, and we will no doubt see the same high level of fan enthusiasm here as Formula E starts a new chapter in this corner of South America. How the drivers will react to this new challenge remains to be seen.
