The Berlin ePrix will this year take place at the former Tempelhof Airport. A revised version of the track that was used during the first edition will be revealed shortly.

The race has reverted to its original location following consultation with the Berlin authorities, who were instrumental in ensuring that the all-electric series remained in the German capital.

“Motorsport with electric motors is an advertisement for innovative technologies and sustainable urban mobility,” said Michael Müller, governing mayor of Berlin. “Electromobility is the key to environmentally friendly transport in the cities of the 21st century, including Berlin. I am therefore delighted that Formula E continues to take place here. The event thrills motorsport fans and proves – in a spectacular way, in front of a special backdrop – the performance of this technology to a wide audience.”

Tempelhof hosted the inaugural Berlin ePrix in 2015, but the event was moved to Karl-Marx-Allee in de city streets after Tempelhof Airport became home of refugees.

In case the Brussels ePrix will be cancelled, a second race could be held in Berlin or another German city.
