A Proposal for Formula E, Following the Coronavirus Pandemic: Part 6

The Second Half of the 2019/2020 Calendar

Selecting the circuits to create the second half of the 2019/2020 calendar, I had some pretty simple rules. Firstly, all of the countries that had scheduled races before the Coronavirus Pandemic cancelled the races, will be prioritised, to have a race, in the second part of this new proposed calendar.

The cancelled races, began in March, from the Sanya ePrix in China, to the Rome ePrix in Italy, to the Paris ePrix in France, to the Seoul ePrix in South Korea, to the Jakarta ePrix in Indonesia, to the Berlin ePrix in Germany, to the New York City ePrix in the U.S.A., and the finale, of the London ePrix in the United Kingdom.

Why would the season suddenly rebegin in August? Well, an August return date for Formula E, would be quite reserved, compared to other motorsport championships.

  • IndyCar, is currently scheduled to rebegin on June 6th 2020, at Texas Motor Speedway
  • The V8 Supercars Championship, is currently planning to start the second part of their season, on the 28th June 2020, at Sydney Motorsport Park
  • Formula 1, is set to start its season, on July 5th 2020, at the Red Bull Ring, in Austria
  • DTM, is set to rebegin on the 12th July 2020, at the Norisring, in Germany.
  • Super GT, is currently planning for its first race on the 12th July 2020, at Okayama Circuit
  • The BTCC, is currently planning for round 1, on the 2nd of August 2020, at Donington Park
  • The WEC, is going back to racing on the 15th August 2020, at Spa-Francorchamps, in Belgium

So, for Formula E, I think a start in August is not outside the realm of possibility, comparing it to other motorsport series. But a July or August restart to the season, is the date we have set, having looked at other motor racing series in the world.

So let’s look at the racetracks, and circuits, I propose for the second half of the 2019/2020 Formula E season.
