The Biscayne Bay Street Circuit is a temporary street circuit that was established in Biscayne Bay, Miami, Florida, to host the Miami ePrix in 2015 as a round of the 2014/15 FIA Formula E Championship.[1] Also unofficially known as the Miami Street Circuit, Biscayne Bay would only host one ePrix before being dropped from the 2015/16 season onward, having received poor reviews from the drivers.[2]

Formula E History

The Biscayne Bay Street Circuit was designed by the design company Aysea in late 2014, after Miami was awarded a place on the inaugural 2014/15 FIA Formula E Championship calendar.[1] The circuit itself was an entirely new layout for a Miami street circuit, centred on the American Airlines Arena, after other circuits had been created further towards downtown Miami.[1] However, after hosting just one ePrix the circuit was dropped as Miami lost its place on the 2015/16 season calendar.[2]

Circuit History

The Biscayne Bay Street Circuit hosted a single ePrix on 14 March 2015, which saw Nelson Piquet Jr. set fastest lap as Nicolas Prost swept to victory.[3]

Circuit Layout

A lap of Biscayne Bay opened with a long, slightly curved, straight, before the field hit the brakes for a 90° left-hand bend.[4] A short straight followed before the field entered turn two, a 90° right, which was instantly followed by an identical 90° right.[4] Another short straight led to another 90°, with the entire turns one through four complex in the shadows under the MacArthur Causeway.[4]

A longer straight followed turn four along the seafront, before the field hit the brakes for turn five, a 90° left.[4] The field then began a loop around the American Airlines Arena, following a short straight before turn six, a 90° right, with pit-in on the outside of the circuit.[4] A short straight and yet another 90° followed, with pit-out on the outside of turn seven, before the field proceeded through a shallow chicane to reach turn eight.[4]

Turn eight appeared in the form of a more oblique right-hand corner, and brought the field back onto the start/finish straight via a small kink.[4]
