The United States will host an E-Prix in 2023, Formula E has confirmed as Portland, Oregon is added to the calendar.
The US has hosted Formula E at least once every season with the exception of 2020, which was restricted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
New York has been the most recent host, holding five double header events since 2017, but was absent from the Season 9 calendar. This was due to the fact part of the Brooklyn circuit will now be used by the cruise industry and won’t be available.
Formula E now switches coasts to head to Portland, a city with extensive motorsport history.
The city has hosted IndyCar and its predecessor Champ Car since the 1980s.
“We are excited to bring the premier electric motorsport world championship to Portland for the first time in June next year,” said Alberto Longo, Formula E co-founder and CCO. “There is a big, passionate fanbase for professional sports in the city, together with strong ecological credentials which makes Portland a perfect host for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
“The USA remains an important market for Formula E. We are delighted to maintain that critical presence and engage a new audience in the Pacific Northwest region in all-electric motorsport.”
The Portland round is set to take place on June 24th.
It is also the final expected addition to the Formula E calendar. The May TBD round which has been in place since Seoul was removed from the 2022-23 calendar has now also been removed.
