The Formula E Punta del Este ePrix is round three of the all-electric FIA Formula E Championship and takes place at December 13 2014. Located near the beach and a harbour, the inaugural event in Uruguay might be one of the venues that leaves a great impression behind. But what would the track look like?
The creator of the Formula E Buenos Aires ePrix video has now simulated the city centre track that will be used in Punta del Este. The circuit is 2.8 km in length and features 20 turns. It is quite narrow at certain parts, but some medium straights might provide overtaking possibilities.
“I think the best overtaking places would be in the first chicane after the start and finish straight and in turn 5 under braking”, predicts Argentine Formula E test driver Juan Manual Lopez. “There are many places where the track is not that wide too, so it’s going to be a place where you really need to keep your concentration.”
