Baku, March 4, AZERTAC
The layout of the Cape Town E-Prix in South Africa has been revealed ahead of its appearance on Formula E's calendar for the 2022-23 season, according to Autosport.
Based in the Green Point area of Cape Town, the circuit uses the Cape Town Stadium as a centrepoint and predominantly features the waterfront looking over the Atlantic Ocean.
The circuit opens with a short straight between the Green Point Stadium and the cricket club, and then takes a tight left-hander onto the motorway - before the cars turn off on the next roundabout, which will be employed as a chicane.
Following Granger Bay Boulevard, the cars turn off on Beach Road and follow the coast before turning onto Fritz Sonnenberg Road, heading back towards the central stadium.
Cape Town will be the second African city to host an E-Prix, following Marrakech's spell as a host city at the Circuit Moulay El Hassan.
Upgrades to the roads will begin in April of this year, to be finished in December.
“We’ve had a very positive response within our ecosystem of teams, drivers and sponsors about coming to Cape Town, so we are delighted that the city is joining our Season 9 calendar," said Alberto Longo, Formula E's chief championship officer.
