Due to the current health crisis, Formula E and FIA have decided to suspend the race for two months this season in order to protect the contestants from the continuous propagation of Covid-19. Formula E, the auto racing using only electric-powered cars, is in Paris on Saturday April 18, 2020 and always at the Invalides. This year, 24 single-seaters face off one another for the e-Prix de Paris featuring 100% electric-powered single-seaters in a 1.93-km tour including 14 turns!
Coronavirus: "Formula E and FIA have decided to freeze races for two months due to the challenge of the current health crises for the organization of events in city centers" organizers said in a press release on Friday March 13, 2020.

ABB FIA Formula E is the single-seater championship using open-wheel and only electric-powered cars, in other words a championship more ecological than formula 1 where automakers battle each other across electric technologies. And good news, the championship stops by Paris on Saturday April 18, 2020 in the wonderful Invalides area!

The e-Prix 2020 race covers 1.93 km and includes 14 turns around the avenues set all around the Hôtel des Invalides, exceptionally closed to the usual traffic that day. The 24 cars and drivers will run to the Place Vauban before joining the Seine and crossing a technic section set just across the facility. Then, after completing the 12, 13 and 14 turns, they'll cross the finish line.

To enjoy the race, seats in bleachers are available on sale and have many assets such as the tour of the stands earlier that day.

For the Paris E-Prix, you'll have to follow French two-time and current champion Jean-Eric Vergne and member of the French-Chinese team DS Techeetah.

Provisional program
