Race facts

“Marrakesh is an old friend of Formula E. Lots of overtaking, lots of energy management and definitely a challenge for all of the drivers.”

Lucas di Grassi

 

Morocco appeared on the calendar for the first time in the third season. The race was integrated in the UN Climate Conference, “COP22,” that was held in Marrakesh at the same time and, consequently, attracted a lot of attention. Since then, the event has become a fixture on the annual calendar and also saw Lucas di Grassi visiting the Noor Power Station in Morocco last year.

 

The circuit is located on the outskirts of the fascinating North African metropolis and features a mixture consisting of a permanent race track and public roads. Popular with photographers are some perspectives from which the snow-covered Atlas Mountains can be seen in the background. The city’s popular souks are not located far from the circuit.
