It is a first for Zürich and a first to be held in Switzerland over sixty years. Motorsports returns to Switzerland – and this time it is with a twist.
With the future in mind and sustainability at the core of it, Zürich has now entered an elite company of global cities to have hosted the FIA Formula E Championship. The residents and fans will get to witness twenty electric cars racing on the 2.46 km circuit which starts at the Enge Harbor next to Lake Zurich.
What to expect on the day of the Formula E Championship race
Though the actual race is taking place on June 10, there will be loads of activities on Saturday at the Allianz E-Village (open from noon until 8 PM). The entry is free, and you can check some of the cool things related to sustainability and electric car racing. On the race day itself, the action begins from 9 AM with practice sessions, followed by qualifying rounds starting at 2 PM.
The actual race will start at 6:04 PM, and by 7 PM, the race and prize distribution will conclude.
Here is a visualization of the race track:
There are VIP tickets available for purchase. Also, there are free public viewing areas. And, if you are above 18 and would like to be at the after-party, get your ticket here. So, come and be a part of Zürich’s history!
