German Capital Berlin To Host FIA Formula E World Championship Race In 2014
Berlin "will reportedly play host to a FIA Formula E World Championship race in '14," according to AUTOBILD. The electric racing series "will host one of its 10 inaugural races in Berlin in '14." The official date and course layout "will be announced at a press conference on Thursday." The most likely course "seems to be at the discontinued Tempelhof airport because Berlin previously declined to host a Formula E race due to security concerns." Formula E circuits "have a maximum length of 2.5km, and the races consist of two 25-minute races plus an additional 10-minute final" (AUTOBILD, 7/5).
