The Moscow ePrix was a motorsport event, staged as part of the 2014/15 FIA Formula E Championship in Moscow, Russia on the Moscow Street Circuit.[1] Staged on 6 June 2015, the Moscow ePrix was set to return for the 2015/16 season, only to be cancelled due to issues setting up the circuit.[2]

City History

Moscow was founded well before 1147, with that the year the earliest in which the city is definitively referenced.[3] The city was subsequently burned to the ground by the Mongols in 1237-8 (after the construction of a defensive wall known as the 'Kremlin'), a fate that the city would face numerous times in its history.[3] The city itself served as Russia's capital, on and off, from the reign of Ivan III after the overthrow of the Mongols.[3]

Sporting wise, Moscow's most infamous incident was its hosting of the 1980 Summer Olympics, which remains one of the biggest events hosted in the city.[3] The city also hosted the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with many football clubs located inside the city boundaries.[3] The FIA also sought to include Russia in the calendar after the inaugural 2014 Russian Grand Prix held in Sochi.[4] The country has also hosted the World Touring Car Championship and DTM at other, purpose built, facilities since 2013.[4]

Formula E History

Moscow was a late addition to the calendar during the inaugural 2014/15 Formula E Season, set to be held on the sixth of June.[1] Moscow's inclusion in the Formula E calendar follows the FIA's decision to hold a Grand Prix in Sochi in 2014 as part of the Formula One Championship.[1] After a successful debut, which saw Nelson Piquet Jr. claim victory, Moscow was included on the 2015/16 season calendar, only to be cancelled late in the season after disputes over using the roads in the Russian capital.[2]

Circuit History

The Moscow Street Circuit was created from roads around Staraya Square, and sits in the shadow of the Kremlin.[4] The Red Square, Moscow Gostiny Dvor and St Basil's Cathedral also feature prominently and hence proved to be major factors in the 2016 Moscow ePrix being cancelled.[2] Ultimately, the roads around those landmarks were unable to be closed off for the race, and hence resulted in the Moscow Street Circuit disappearing from the FE calendar just a month before the Moscow ePrix was set to be staged for a second time.[2]
