Formula E has confirmed Cape Town will host its first ABB FIA Formula E World Championship E-Prix in 2023.
For the first time, South Africans can witness the high-speed thrills of this electric race in person. The inaugural Cape Town E-Prix is set to be staged in Season 9, rather than season 8 as originally intended, and signaling the start of the five-year commitment to host E-Prix in Cape Town.
The event will take place in the foothills of Table Mountain on February 25th.
e-Movement (Pty) Ltd and Formula E entered into a multi-year agreement to host the world’s only all-electric FIA World Championship in 2021 and remain committed to delivering a world-class event. As part of this vision, there will be a number of key moments in 2022 including the track reveal and an e-Investment seminar to map out a 10-year programme of strategies to drive the e-mobility economic sector and the positive effects on climate change.
