The Berlin ePrix will now feature a double-header. The World Motor Sport Council has announced today that the German city receives a second race on Sunday which will replace the Brussels ePrix.
By doing so, the Formula E championship will retain its 12 races this season. The Berlin ePrix will take place at the former Tempelhof Airport, the same location as the first edition of the Formula E race in Germany. But the track layout has been completely redesigned and will be presented later this month.
It will be the first of three doubleheader events. In July the Formula E drivers will complete two races in New York and two in Montreal, the city that takes the honour to conclude the season.
The Brussels ePrix has been in trouble for a long time as it the series was nog able to race at two selected locations.
Formula E fans who had already purchased grandstand tickets for the Karl-Marx-Allee circuit will have their tickets upgraded to a weekend ticket at Tempelhof and will also be given access to a special pit walk the morning of Saturday, June 10. Ticketmaster Germany will contact all ticket holders with further information once the grandstand configuration and pit walk timing are finalised for the new venue.
