Formula E races take place on specially-designed street circuits in city centres. This takes the sport to the spectators, not the other way round.
In Season 6 (2019/2020), a total of 14 Formula E races will be taking place in 12 countries on five continents around the globe.
Race 1 and 2 – Diriyah, Saudi Arabia
Located on the outskirts of the capital Riyadh, the course is one of the most demanding in the motor racing calendar.

The circuit offers plenty of diversity for drivers with a variety of slow, medium and fast turns. From turns 1 to 14 especially, the track keeps alternating between left and right turns. The first section is dominated by medium to fast turns while the second section with narrow passages is more characteristic of other classic Formula E tracks. It’s difficult to find another track like it with its combination of uphill and downhill sections along the entire circuit.
