Video: first look at the Beijing Formula E track

Regular visitors of ElectricAutosport.com have seen the digital race tracks of Buenos Aires and Punta del Este made by an Argentine video artist. The talented racing fan has now created a first look at the Beijing track were the all-electric Formula E Championship will race next month.

The inaugural ePrix has been set around the grounds of China’s iconic Olympic Stadium, more commonly known as the Bird’s Nest and venue for the 2008 Olympic Games. At 3.44km in length and featuring 20 turns, the anti-clockwise temporary circuit has been custom made by designer Rodrigo Nunes.

“It will be a tremendous challenge to learn the limits of this track quickly, as well as to understand the best overtaking opportunities. The most obvious places are likely to be the first and last corners,” Audi Sport ABT driver Lucas di Grassi commented. “The circuit will also require lots of traction and braking stability, while the energy recuperation at braking zones will help to stabilise the car. The pit lane is also unique and requires some special practice to get right.”

The Formula E Beijing ePrix takes place on September 13, 2014.
