Cape Town will see Formula E’s third Generation race car which reaches top speeds of 320 kph.
The Gen3 electric cars will race their way through the Green Point and Waterfront precincts, with Signal Hill and other famous Cape Town landmarks as the track backdrop. This 2.94 km, 12-turn track is predicted to be one of the fastest in the series.
22 electric cars will set off from the start-line on Vlei Road, take the first chicane left into Helen Suzman Boulevard, followed by the second left turn chicane into Granger Bay Boulevard.
The track runs down Beach Road in Mouille Point, continuing alongside the oceanfront before taking a sharp left-hander into Fritz Sonnenberg Road and ending with a final right turn to the finish line.
Formula E is the only event in the world that lets fans play an active roll in influencing the outcome of the race.
