Formula E revealed the track layout of the Berlin ePrix, which is a total redesigned version of what was being used during the first season. It will feature two races taking place on Saturday 10 June and the following Sunday.
The track at the former Tempelhof Airport counts ten corners, seven less than in the previous edition, and has a length of 2.25 km. What stands out is the long first corning and the long back straight. It has been completely re-profiled to compliment the faster and more efficient Formula E cars of Season 3.
Last year’s race took place at the city centre, racing along the famous Karl-Marx-Allee. The decision to stage the event elsewhere was taken because the former airport was host to refugees.
“For us as a German team with German partners, and me as a German driver, it is great news that we will have two home races this season,” said Daniel Abt, racing for ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport. “It’s no secret that I loved the track around Karl-Marx-Allee a lot. But now that I have seen the new Tempelhof layout, I can’t wait to get there. The fans will love the unique setting that brings everyone so close to the action and us drivers. The track is perfect for great racing and a lot of overtaking. I’m looking forward to meeting my home crowd. We will put on a great 48-hour Formula E party for the fans in Berlin.”
