Season 4 Formula E calendar returns racing to Switzerland
The FIA World Motor Sport Council held its meeting in Paris today, announcing some important decisions about FIA championship calendars and regulations. The council confirmed the 2017-18 FIA Formula E Championship calendar, which was provisional since its introduction few months ago.
Today, a calendar became official and it’s already a historic, because FIA is preparing a return of circuit racing to Switzerland for the first time since racing was banned in 1955, following that year’s Le Mans tragedy. The tenth round of the fourth Formula E season is scheduled for June 10, 2018, in Zürich. The Swiss city is one of four new venues in a calendar, together with Santiago de Chile, Sao Paulo and Rome.
The season will kick-off in December with a double-header event in Hong Kong. New York and Montreal will also host double program in the final two weekends of the season, same as in the 2016/2017 season.
