Formula E cars

The ABB FIA Formula E Championship will be back in London in 2020, proving how spectacularly speedy electric cars can be.

Following the 2015 and 2016 London E-Prix in Battersea Park, the 2020 event will comprise 23 corners in an indoor and outdoor circuit around the Royal Docks and ExCeL London.

"Every motorsport series would love to host an event in London – this has been our desire for quite some time now and we're delighted to have found a new home at the ExCeL," says series Founder and CEO Alejandro Agag.

"We have a growing base of knowledgeable and passionate fans in the UK, and this race adds to a fantastic summer of sport as a world-class event we hope Londoners can be proud of.

"Formula E coming back to the UK extends beyond pure racing excitement, it's also a strong message for London to tackle inner-city air pollution by promoting clean technologies and electric sustainable mobility."

Not up to speed on Formula E? The action from Hong Kong E-Prix will be screened on BBC Two on March 10th.
