Cape Town will become the first Southern African city to host the exciting, all-electric Formula E racing series, joining a host of the world’s most iconic cities to present the ABB FIA Formula World Championship on 26 February 2022.

Chairman at e-Movement Iain Banner shares the details with Zain Johnson, standing in for John Maytham on the Afternoon Drive.

Banner says Formula E is currently in its seventh season as a global series.

It has grown over time and notable cities include Paris, Berlin, London, Rome, New York as well as Hong Kong, and more.

While it has been hosted in Africa before in Marakesh, he says, but they have worked for the past two years to secure this spot for the Mother City.

We are delighted that both FIA and Formula E have decided to include Cape Town.

The track is a street circuit that we will reveal later in the month - which basically routes around Mouille Point and around the stadium - and is about 2.9 kms and anticipated to be one of the fastest circuits on the world series.
