Track revealed for season ending Montreal ePrix

The layout for the season ending Montreal ePrix double header on the 29th and 30th of July has been revealed.

The 1.71 mile track features fourteen turns, with the start line on the Boulevard Rene-Levesque E, before then winding past Rue Viger E and the Maison Radio-Canada.

Speaking at the announcement of the layout, Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag said that Montreal would help add to the growing list of world cities that have hosted an ePrix.

“Formula E wants to bring fully-electric racing to the streets of the world’s leading cities and Montreal is another fantastic new addition to the calendar.

“Montreal is a great city with a great vibe – the perfect place to conclude the third season of Formula E. I’m sure the drivers will revel in the opportunity to fight for the title against the backdrop of Montreal.”

FIA President Jean Todt also said that the city’s tradition of motorsport, having hosted Formula 1 for nearly forty years, make it the ideal place to finish the third season of Formula E.

“Montreal has a great motorsport tradition and the local authorities, as well as its citizens are particularly receptive to a hot topic such as a new model for sustainable mobility.

“If there’s one single event that brings together these two elements, it’s definitely a Formula E race.

“I’m therefore very pleased that Montreal is preparing to host the final round of the third season of the FIA Formula E Championship.

“I’m sure this event will attract the attention of motorsport fans, but also a wider audience, who are interested in the future of mobility in this great city.”

Commenting on the new track, the series’ inaugural champion Nelson Piquet Jnr said, “Canada is a country that embraces motorsport, and I’m so happy to be here in Montreal to help unveil the track layout.

“It’s a fantastic city and it’s going to be amazing racing around the streets here in July. It’s the perfect venue for our season finale.”
