The e-Touring Car Challenge will have two practice sessions ahead of a 15-minute qualifying and 20-minute race event. Both practice sessions and race event will be held on the track of Formula E. Five celebrity drivers who have previous racing experience will be invited to compete with ten veteran drivers, which will surely add to the overall fun and excitement of this much anticipated race.
As is the nature of street circuits, the Hong Kong ePrix circuit will be a demanding race track to test drivers’ speed, talent and racing mettle. Two tight hairpins turns – one at Lung Wo Road and a second at the Star Ferry Pier – feature alongside a 555-metre main straight, a key opportunity for overtaking.
Designed by Rodrigo Nunes of R+S Project, the circuit runs clockwise and features a 555-metre main straight between Turns 1 and 2, which is the circuit’s best overtaking opportunities. Turns 2 through 9 showcase the technical challenges of the track with a variety of corners, including a chicane. The fastest part of the circuit is from Turn 9 to Turn 2, with an interesting left-hand corner on Turn 10.
