Formula E is all set to make its way to India and we now have confirmed details on the race weekend that will be held in Hyderabad. Formula E has released the provisional calendar for 2023 and the Hyderabad E-Prix will be held on February 11, 2023. The Indian round will be confirmed once the homologation of the circuit is complete. The Hyderabad E-Prix will be the first major international motorsport championship to be held in India since Formula 1 in 2013. Earlier this year, Formula E announces its intent to arrive in India and was working with the Telangana government and clean energy company Greenko for the same. The news is massive once you consider Mahindra Racing has been a part of the championship since inception and is the only Indian team on the grid.
In a statement, Formula E said, “Two major motorsport fanbases will welcome E-Prix for the first time. Round 4 of the championship will be held in Hyderabad, India, on February 11, while fans in Brazil will see the São Paulo E-Prix on March 25 for Round 7.”
The Formula E Season 9 provisional calendar includes 18 races to be held across 13 cities
The Hyderabad e-Prix will be the fourth round of Season 9 that’s set to begin in December this year in Valencia with pre-season testing. The race will be held on a 2.37 km street circuit that has been designed by Driven International, which has also worked on the Yas Marina Circuit in the past. The circuit will wind through Lumbini Park, passing the iconic Hussain Sagar lake. It will also be held in the evening under lights.
The Hyderabad e-Prix will not only see world-class teams and drivers showing their electrifying mettle at the circuit. The round will also host two rounds of the maiden Formula Regional Indian Championship, along with F4 India and the Indian Racing League in November and December this year.
The newly released provisional calendar also adds the Sao Paulo e-Prix and returns to Mexico City. Season 9 will see a record 18 races being held across 13 cities between January and July next year. The next season will see Maserati and McLaren make their debut in the championship joining Mahindra, Jaguar, NIO 333, DS Automobiles, Nissan, and Porsche on the grid. The teams will be working with the Gen3 Formula E cars that offer a better range, higher top speed and more sustainably built.
