The start of Formula E season postponed
Beijing authorities requested Formula E Holdings to delay the start of the new season and their request has been accepted.
Due to other events taking place in the Olympic Park from October 16 – 18, the start of the new season is postponed for a week and will start on October 24th.
This change will not affect the rest of the calendar, so second race in the season will go on as it was scheduled earlier – in Putrajaya on November 7th.
“While it is regrettable that the date of the opening race has had to be delayed by one week, we understand the logistical difficulties in staging conflicting events. Together with our partners and the authorities, we therefore decided that the best course of action was to move our race by one week. We remain confident that despite the date change the Beijing ePrix will provide for a spectacular start to the second season of our championship,” said Alejandro Agag, Formula E CEO.
