Soon the season two calendar of the FIA Formula E Championship will be revealed after its approval by the World Motor Sport Council on July 10 in Mexico City. Motorsport.com understands that the draft calendar includes 11 rounds and 12 races.

As series organiser Alejandro Agag told the media several times, Mexico City and Paris are very likely included on the schedule with the race in Mexico taking place in February and Paris would stage the first European event on Sunday June 24.

The season starts one month later than it did in the inaugural season, on October 17 in Beijing, China. The series then travels Putrajaya, Malaysia, Punta del Este, Uruguay the same year, followed by a one month gap to Buenos Aires, Argentina. After the race in Mexico City has been completed in February as well, there is room for an ePrix in March.

Long Beach seems, for now, the only American round as Miami has been dropped. Monaco is also not listed in this draft calendar as it is believed to be organised bi-annually as it would alternate with the Historic Grand Prix. Therefore Paris, Berlin, Moscow and London will host the European Events.

Rumours indicate that Brussels, Lugano, Montreal (which has a principle agreement since September 2014) and even the Italian cities of Rome and Naples might be included soon as well. Hong Kong, which is for years in the process to make a race possible, is not included as well as Kazakhstan which is pushing to organise an ePrix.

  1. I remember someone back in march reporting that Miami signed a 4 or 5 year deal. It also seamed a return to Long Beach was unlikely. Which would be unfortunate. I’m glad to see Uruguay might be coming back, it looks like a great destination race!

    • You’re right Manny, however with Miami it might have been a one year deal with a principle agreement to host another four (same is in London for example), but perhaps Formula E wasn’t happy with the event or the local organisers choose not to continue. Speculation, but I’m sure they have good reasons.
