The London ePrix is an annual race of the single-seater, electrically powered Formula E championship, held in London, United Kingdom. It was first raced in the 2014-15 season until the 2015-16 season.[1] The event was originally meant to return for the 2019-20 season at a new location around (and through) ExCeL London but it was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[2]

Circuit

Battersea Park

The first two editions of the London ePrix took place at the Battersea Park Street Circuit, a temporary street circuit at Battersea Park in London, England. The track was 2.922 km in length and featured 17 turns. The track was designed by Formula E's London event team and British architect Simon Gibbons.[3]

Royal Victoria Dock/ExCeL

From 2020, the London ePrix was scheduled to be held around and through the ExCeL London and around the Royal Victoria Dock, however the calendar was adjusted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2.4 km layout was due to feature 23 turns and be Formula E's first "indoor/outdoor" track.[2]
