Formula E 2024 calendar confirmed for Season 10 as China returns

The Season 10 Formula E calendar is the biggest in the championship's 10-year history

-

The 2024 Formula E calendar has been announced with confirmation of the championship’s return to China in the 17-race season which will begin in Mexico City on January 13.

Formula E‘s first ever visit to Tokyo was already announced earlier in 2023, with Cape Town dropped from the schedule after only one year, along with Jakarta.

There will be six double-headers in Diriyah, Misano, Berlin, Shanghai, Portland and London – where fast charge races are expected to be held. The Italy event has taken place in Rome since 2018 but Formula E have decided to change locations to MotoGP track Misano on the east coast.

Another change to the original schedule announced in October is Portland has become a double-header, so the final four venues will host two races each.

India is a surprise inclusion on the schedule on February 10 after talk about a lack of funding from the government. With no Cape Town, there will be a five-week gap to Sao Paulo on March 16 before Tokyo on March 30.

The European leg begins with Misano on April 13 and 14, followed by Monaco on April 27 and a double-header in Berlin on May 11 and 12.

Mainland China features on the schedule for the first time since Season 1 in 2015 as the Shanghai International Circuit will host a Formula E double-header on May 25 and 26. The track will be a shortened version of the Formula 1 circuit.

Jakarta is also off the calendar so there is another five-week break to Portland on June 29 and June 30, with London hosting the Formula E finale with two races on July 20 and 21.

Reaction to Formula E 2024 calendar

Formula E in 2024 will be the 10th season of the championship and the second campaign with the Gen3 car, which continues to be a big talking point in the paddock.

“Without doubt our Season 10 calendar is the most compelling yet for drivers, teams, fans and viewers around the world,” said Formula E co-founder Alberto Longo.

“We are taking Formula E to Shanghai for the first time and are honoured to return to India thanks to the support of the Telangana Government and Minister K. T. Rama Rao.

“The combination of street circuits, which is in Formula E’s DNA, and established race tracks will allow drivers to push the capabilities of the GEN3 car harder and further after a first season that beat all expectations with triple-digit overtakes in most races and the world championship titles decided on the final weekend.”

Formula E CEO Jeff Dodds added: “Formula E will lead global motorsport next season as the only world championship to race in the three biggest markets of China, India and the USA.

“Together with our debut on the streets of Tokyo and races in other major global markets like Brazil, Germany, Saudi Arabia and the UK, we have built a calendar that has the potential to engage billions of people in the exciting, entertaining, electric future of motorsport.”
