Cape Town added to Season 9 Calendar

The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is set to race in Cape Town, South Africa for the first time on 25th February 2023, following approval at the FIA World Motor Sport Council meeting.

The original calendar draft unveiled after the WMSC meeting in June featured three calendar slots to be confirmed, with the already agreed Cape Town E-Prix left off the provisional schedule.

In further updates to the Season 9 calendar, Berlin will now host a double-header race weekend on 22 and 23rd April while the two races previously announced for Seoul have been removed from the calendar. Rounds 10 and 13 are still to be finalised and will be announced at a later date.

Updated Calendar

We are excited to announce Cape Town as a new destination for our series in Season 9. Our local partners are working incredibly hard to bring an ABB FIA Formula E World Championship race to the city and we cannot wait to see the futuristic Gen3 race cars competing against the iconic natural backdrop of Table Mountain. Renovation work at the Olympic Stadium in Seoul, the venue for our first races in South Korea earlier this year, means we cannot return to the same location next season as originally planned and so we are exploring other options in South Korea to replace this venue. We are also in active discussions with more world cities and venues to host an event on the other date without a confirmed location.

Alberto Longo, Co-Founder and Chief Championship Officer, Formula E.
