The circuit for the inaugural FIA Formula E race in Seoul has been revealed ahead of its inclusion on the 2019-20 calendar.

Formula E will visit Seoul for the first time in the championship’s history on May 3 2020, with the race acting as the tenth round of a 14-event calendar schedule for season six, which also features the return of the London E-Prix.

The 2.8km, 19-turn circuit will be located within the city’s Olympic Park, with some of the track being housed inside the former Olympic stadium now known as the Jamsil Sports Complex.

“I’m so excited to be coming to Korea and the streets of Seoul for the first time with the ABB FIA Formula E Championship next season," said FE founder and CEO Alejandro Agag.

"Seoul is such a vibrant and versatile city with sporting heritage and experience in hosting international events.

"Formula E will be showcasing speed and performance at the former Olympic venue, using a unique track with a spectacular stadium section."

Chairman of the Seoul E-Prix Racing Event Management, Beom Lee, said: “In addition to aiming the Formula E event in Korea by introducing eco-friendly automotive technology through a futuristic competition, this year’s event will also contribute the development of the domestic automotive industry by minimising environmental damage such as air pollution, and position the championship as the next-generation racing event.”
