Misano to Host Formula E Double-Header in 2024
The FIA’s World Motor Sport Council has made the decision to move the Formula E race in Italy from the Circuito Cittadino dell’EUR street circuit in Rome to the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. The permanent circuit will now host a double-header event on 13-14 April next year.
Leaving Rome for Safety Reasons
The move comes in the wake of a major multi-car crash in this year’s race in Rome. The incident raised concerns about the safety of the current layout, with the new Gen3 machines being considered too fast for the street circuit. As a result, the FIA decided it was necessary to find an alternative venue for the Formula E race in Italy.
Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli: An Ideal Replacement
Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, located in the town of Misano Adriatico on the Adriatic Coast, has been chosen as the new location for the Formula E race. The circuit is known for its excellent facilities and challenging layout, making it an ideal replacement for the street circuit in Rome.
A Thrilling Double-Header Event
The Misano double-header event promises to deliver twice the excitement for Formula E fans. Not only will they get to witness the intense wheel-to-wheel battles on the track, but they will also have the chance to explore the stunning surroundings of Misano Adriatico and experience the vibrant atmosphere of an Italian motorsport event.
With the new Gen3 cars set to debut in the 2022/2023 Formula E season, the Misano circuit provides the perfect venue for these powerful machines to showcase their capabilities. The track’s mix of fast straights, challenging corners, and elevation changes will put the drivers’ skills to the test, ensuring a thrilling racing spectacle.
Looking Forward to the Future
The decision to move the Formula E race from Rome to Misano reflects the FIA’s commitment to ensuring the safety of drivers and providing the best possible experience for fans. As the sport continues to grow in popularity, finding suitable circuits that can accommodate the demands of Formula E becomes increasingly important.
With its state-of-the-art facilities and spectator-friendly layout, Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli is poised to become a favorite destination for Formula E races in the years to come. The upcoming double-header event in 2024 will set the stage for future thrilling races at this iconic Italian circuit.
