Six German ePrix in nine days to conclude the Formula E season

Six German ePrix in nine days to conclude the Formula E season

The Formula E season will conclude with six races in nine days at the start of August, the FIA has announced.

Raced almost exclusively on city-centre street circuits, the series - that traditionally runs from December to July - had more issues to face than most when considering a return to racing, and outright cancellation of the season was reportedly considered.

But races will now take place on August 5/6, 8/9 and 12/13, with the opening and closing races being held on a Wednesday and Thursday, while the middle event lands on the same weekend as the Formula 1 70th Anniversary race at Silverstone.

The races will all be behind closed doors and run on alternate layouts of the Tempelhof Airport Street Circuit. Given the open space at the airport, creating a series of interesting and various layouts should not be a difficult task.

A maximum of 1000 people will be allowed on-site at any one time, a total which includes local suppliers and medical crews.

With regard to social distancing and other precautions for the prevention of a Covid-19 outbreak, Formula E said: "Key health and safety protocol includes mandatory coronavirus testing prior to the races, as well as on-site screening every day upon arrival at the track.

"Formula E will also actively enforce the use of face masks, social distancing and limit movement across workspaces with clearly defined zones for different event populations."
