The Zürich Street Circuit is a temporary street circuit based in Enge, Zürich, Switzerland, that hosted the 2018 Zürich E-Prix as a round of the 2017/18 ABB FIA Formula E Championship.[1] The Zürich Street Circuit, which was designed on a home computer by e-Mobil CEO Züri Roger Tognella, would host one Zürich E-Prix, before being replaced by Bern for the 2018/19.[2]

Formula E History

Zürich was selected to host the ABB FIA Formula E Championship ahead of the 2017/18 season, after a change in Switzerland's laws allowed circuit racing to return to the Swiss state for the first time since 1955.[1] The question of where the first Zürich E-Prix, which was scheduled for 10 June 2018, would be staged was answered early, focused on the shores of Lake Zürich in the southeast of the city, within the Enge district.[3] The circuit would run incorporate the harbour front, old city and the Zürich Arboretum, with the latter playing host to the eVillage throughout the day.[3]

Circuit History

The final design of the Zürich Street Circuit was refined from the designs of e-Mobil CEO Züri Roger Tognella and his son Andrin, who used a home computer and Google Earth to outline the circuit.[4] The circuit duly hosted the inaugural 2018 Zürich E-Prix on 10 June 2018, which saw Lucas di Grassi claim victory.[5] The race was set to return for the 2019/20 season, skipping 2018/19 due to other events in the city, although it would not appear on the final calendar for season six.[2][6]

Circuit Layout

A lap of the Zürich Street Circuit opened with a long start/finish straight, before the field hit the brakes for turn one a right-hand curve.[3] The exit of the corner was made trickier by tram lines, which also ran through to the braking zone for turn two, a 90° left.[3] A straight follows to lead the field into turn three, another 90° left, which was itself followed by a short straight and another 90° left.[3]

A shorter straight followed before the field hit the brakes for turn five, an acute right, swiftly followed by a 90° left forming turn six.[3] Another short straight then led the field into turn seven, a right-hand kink which fed the field into turns eight and nine, a left-right chicane which exited onto the back straight.[3] A long run follows before the field hit the brakes for turn ten, a left-hand hairpin, followed by a small left-hand kink of turn eleven to lead the field back onto the start/finish straight.[3]
