The ExCeL E-Prix Circuit is a future street circuit, set to host the 2021 London E-Prix as part of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E Championship.[2] The ExCeL E-Prix Circuit is to be formed in and around the ExCeL Centre on the Royal Victoria Dock in London, UK, hosting the final two races of the seventh FE season.[3]

The ExCeL Circuit was originally set top host the 2019/20 season finale, although the event was cancelled as a result of the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic which had seen the ExCeL Centre converted into a temporary hospital.[4]

Formula E History

The ExCeL Centre first appeared as a potential host of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship during the 2018/19 season, amid rumours of the series negotiating a return to the UK capital of London.[1] Successful negotiations between the ExCeL's owners (the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company), London City Council and Formula E Holdings were announced on the 5 March 2019, with the London E-Prix formally added to the 2019/20 Championship calendar.[1] The ExCeL was listed as the host of the E-Prix, with the provisional 2019/20 calendar listing two season ending races at the ExCeL.[3]

However, as a result of the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic the 2020 London E-Prix was cancelled, with the ExCeL Centre being turned into a temporary hospital to aid the treatment of patients of the virus.[4][5]

Circuit History

The ExCeL E-Prix Circuit was revealed at the same time as the announcement of the 2020 London E-Prix, and is set to become the second circuit to host the London E-Prix.[1] An intriguing design suggested that the field would race both in and around the ExCeL, with the start/finish straight in the main arena.[1] The circuit would also run along the Quay Front, and weave its way past the Prince Regent Station.[1]

The ExCeL also signed a multi-year deal to host the London E-Prix.[1]

Circuit Layouts

A lap of the ExCeL E-Prix Circuit opens with a 90° left, followed by a more open right and a short straight.[1] A tighter acute left follows to form turn three, before another short straight leads the field out of the ExCel and into turns four and five, a pair of 90° rights with pit-out on the outside.[1] The circuit then runs alongside the western wall of the ExCeL, interrupted by a right-left-right chicane halfway along.[1]

A 90° right at turn nine turns the field across the north of the ExCeL, with a long straight carrying the drivers into turn ten, a hairpin left.[1] A short blast follows before another hairpin forms turn eleven, this one bending right, before a short, kinked, straight carried the field into turns twelve and thirteen, a right-left chicane.[1] Turn fourteen serves as little more than a kink before turn fifteen, a long multi-apex right that runs alongside Prince Regent station.[1]

From there the circuit runs past the ExCeL hotel and into the eastern car park, with turns eighteen and nineteen forming a multi-apex right.[1] Turn twenty follows as a long left hand corner, followed by an oblique angle right at turn 21 to carry the field onto the Quay front.[1] Pit-in arrives on the outside of turn 22, a tight right hand turn that carries the field back into the ExCeL, with a similarly sharp left at turn 23 returns the field to the start/finish straight.[1]

2022 Update

For 2022 the ExCeL Circuit was updated, with the double haiprin in the second sector replaced by a bus-stop style chicane, after the double hairpin had been the sight of several accidents in the 2021 races.[6]
