The wait is over.

The break that Formula E had to take seemed almost endless. But now the wait is over and it’s finally time to get back to the race track – albeit with a special program.

For all fans of Formula E, this is certainly most welcome news: the FIA has announced that the rest of the Season 6 program has been scheduled and will now finally take place. It’s not just the Formula E fans – the drivers are also eagerly awaiting the restart of the season, however, everyone involved has to prepare for an unusual experience.

The starting signal will be given at the beginning of August – with three double races.The first event will be held on August 5th and 6th, the second on August 8th and 9th, and the grand finale then on August 12th and 13th. So six races will take place within just nine days. A real highlight for the fans and a true challenge for the teams. To ensure that Formula E also lives up to its environmentally friendly approach for this special end-of-season event, all races will be held in one city.

The place to be.

For the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E team, the place to be from the start of August is Berlin: the paused season will continue and end on the site of the former Berlin-Tempelhof airport. This means that the drivers, who have already driven virtual races in Berlin during the race break in the FIA ABB Race at Home Challenge, will now return to the real airport site. In an effort to make it a little trickier for the drivers, the track layout will vary from double race to double race; so the two Porsche drivers, Neel Jani and André Lotterer, will have to keep adjusting to a new track – without leaving Berlin.

For all Formula E fans, the place to be will still be home. Due to current restrictions, the end of the season will unfortunately have to take place without on-site spectators. Nevertheless, there will be plenty of great opportunities to watch the races. To comply with health regulations, teams will be on the track with fewer personnel than usual, and will have to meet strict hygiene requirements. Even though everyone wanted a different finale for Season 6, the positive outweighs the negative. Racing is back. And we can finally say again: “We go green” – in reality!
