London ePrix still a long way away

Despite support from London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan. Formula E looks unlikely to be returning to England’s capital anytime soon. 

During Formula E’s announcement with ABB in London. Formula E’s CEO Alejandro Agag confirmed that London was still a long way off from returning to the calendar, but it is a city that the series will keep trying to get on the schedule as the series develops.

“I have no good news to tell you regarding a return of the London ePrix,” said Agag. “We still have great support from London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan but where we want to race is owned by Royal Parks. They are not keen on that location being used to become a temporary street circuit, which we respect.

“We are looking at other alternatives for a race in London, but we are trying to get a track that captures the heart of London, rather than racing somewhere else in London just to say we have raced in London,” said Agag. 

Agag is referring to a possible track around Buckingham Palace that may pass Hyde Park Corner and pass through other significant landmarks in London.

Formula E has yet to reveal if a city that will replace Montreal for the season finale, but with London not in the running. Time is running out to find a replacement, which means New York will likely be where the season ends.
