Rome to host @FIAformulaE race next April

Gladiators of Formula E take to streets of Rome to unveil track layout for inaugural race on April 14 next year

Reigning FIA Formula E champion Lucas di Grassi drove in formation alongside Sebastien Buemi, Nelson Piquet Jr. and newly-signed NIO Formula E driver Luca Filippi through the Eternal City – making a pit-stop at Campidoglio, continuing past the iconic Colosseum and towards the Roma Convention Center La Nuvola in the contemporary district of EUR where the race will be held.

The Circuto Cittadino dell’EUR consists of 21 turns and is 2.86km in length – with the cars lining-up on the starting-grid on Via Cristoforo Colombo and navigating their way around the Obelisco di Marconi against the backdrop of Colosseo Quadrato – subject to FIA track homologation.
