Formula E: Long Beach track switched up for all-electric ePrix this weekend (VIDEO)

3 Comments

The venerable, iconic Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach street circuit will come to life this weekend for the sixth round of the FIA Formula E Championship, the Long Beach ePrix.

The circuit is a bit different from the one the Verizon IndyCar Series and other championships will use later this month.

The cars come down the front straight and will hit the chicane at Turns 1 and 2, which takes them onto the pit road exit lane used during the Grand Prix.

That will then dovetail into another right-hander, Turn 3, which is a left-handed Turn 6 on the Grand Prix course.

From there the Formula E cars will follow the circuit as the Grand Prix will, up through the right-hander onto the back straight and into the final right, sweeping left and right-handed hairpin complex.

Dragon Racing’s Jerome d’Ambrosio provides narration on a virtual lap of the track, linked above.
