Formula E Chile track layout revealed

Formula E have revealed the track layout for the inaugural Santiago ePrix in Chile during a display run by Indycar driver Eliseo Salazar.

The native driver took the Spark showcase car around the city on his first venture in Formula E machinery ahead of the unveiling of the track design.

The fourth round of the 2017/18 season will be raced on a 2.47km circuit with 12 corners, subject to FIA homologation.

The start line is placed on the Avenue Santa Maria, with the track sitting amongst the urban parks and crossing the River Mapocho.

“It’s an honour to join President Bachelet for the first appearance of Formula E on the streets of Santiago,” said Formula E’s co-founder and Deputy CEO Alberto Longo.

“For the people of Chile, it’s the first time they’ve seen and heard the fully-electric car in their home city.

“The racing and competition this year is going to be closer than ever and we can’t wait to see the drivers battle it out around this new and challenging circuit in February.

“South America is steeped in motorsport history and tradition – and Formula E will make its own history in Chile for many years to come, starting this coming season.”
