ABB FIA Formula E heads to Germany for the e-Prix in Berlin.

For the tenth race in Season 5, the world’s premier fully electric global motor-racing championship is set to return to the German capital of Berlin. The city has hosted Formula E races in every season since the championship’s inception in 2014, including the double-header rounds in Season 3 and a one-off event in 2016 at the Karl-Marx Allee circuit.


The new Gen2 cars, which have already showcased their powerful performance in the first nine rac-es of the season, will once again display the dramatic potential of cutting-edge e-mobility technolo-gy at Berlin’s now-decommissioned Tempelhof airport. Historic Tempelhof, which was once used to test some of the world’s first aircraft, retains its colossal main terminal building, designed with im-posing modernist concrete architecture. Tempelhof’s airfield, which was designated as an airport over nine decades ago, now hosts numerous fairs and sporting events, including the Berlin Mara-thon Fair and a round of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.


The race in Berlin will ramp up competition for title honors in Season 5. Over a 2.25 km circuit, laid out on Tempelhof’s tarmac infield, 22 drivers and 11 teams will face ten turns, with a chicane at Turns 2 and 3 and a hairpin bend at Turn 9. A section of track will also pass through the VIP-only Emo-tion Club, forming a short ‘indoor’ tunnel through which the Gen2 cars will race.


Last season, German racing driver Daniel Abt scored a win in Berlin, becoming the series’ third driv-er to win a race in his home country. Audi driver Abt has yet to win this season, but he set the fastest lap in the third Season 5 race in Santiago, Chile.


The Berlin E-Prix, which will be followed by the race in Swiss capital Bern, marks the penultimate round of this season’s European stretch of its global tour. After the Bern E-Prix, the season will con-clude with a double-header grand finale in New York, USA, in July.
