A look into Marrakesh

We are back racing once again, with Formula E and we are in Marrakesh, Morocco for Round 10 of Season 8, where the championship is heating up as its a four way battle for the Drivers’ title.

Mercedes-EQ Stoffel Vandoorne, still leads the way in the drivers championship with a five point lead over nearest challenger and double champion, Jean-Eric Vergne. Edoardo Mortara sits in third and the winner last time out at the inaugural Jakarta E-Prix, Mitch Evans rounds out the top four, with him being 12 points away from the lead of the championship.

The Circuit-

The Atlas mountains provide a stunning back drop, with it being Formula E’s fifth trip to the city’s centuries-old Agdal district with Marrakesh first being featured in 2016.

The track follows the form the circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan – named after the Crown Price of Morocco – before spilling out onto the streets of Marrakesh’s hotel district.

Renowned for being an energy zapping circuit, the fast and highly technical track features 12 turns, three straights and a series of bends completing a track length of 2.971km.
