The next round of the 2016/17 Formula E championship season will take place around the Moulay El Hassan circuit in Marrakesh. The race on November 12 will be the first time the series has visited Africa, and has been scheduled to coincide with the international climate change conference, COP22.
The track, which has recently been remodeled, hosted two races in the World Touring Car Championship earlier this year. It runs along public streets for much of its length, before entering a section of purpose-built track around the old paddock.
At almost 3km (1.8 miles), it is also significantly longer than the likes of Paris, London and Hong Kong. Indeed, it is currently the longest track on the calendar, so drivers will need to think carefully when planning race strategies.
Sébastien Buemi tops the drivers’ standings after the opening race in Hong Kong.
