Formula E has confirmed the iconic Tempelhof venue will stay in the series’ calendar for two more years
The fully-electric championship and the government of Berlin have extended the contract and the former airport will continue to host the championship for at least two more years.
The venue has been present in all Formula E seasons except in the 2015-16 championship, where the race was moved to Alexander Platz in downtown Berlin. It was in Tempelhof that the series had its compacted six-race season finale as the 2020 COVID-19 crisis caused the ongoing season to be halted for several months.
“Berlin is the only city that has been on the racing calendar every year since the inaugural season in 2014 and the iconic Tempelhof Airport provided the venue for the event for the seventh time this weekend”, commented Franziska Giffey, mayor of Berlin.
She added that “The track has quickly become one of the most well-known racetracks in Formula E, and I am therefore delighted that it has been contractually secured that Formula E will also take place on the Tempelhof site for the next two years”
For the mayor “Formula E not only offers us exciting electric racing, but is also an important platform to promote technological and sustainable innovations that can facilitate our transition to a greener and electric future”
