Record breaking 2024/25 Formula E calendar released, featuring Miami

The FIA World Motor Sport Council has confirmed the 2024/25 Formula E calendar which features a record-breaking 17 races including a round in Miami.

The provisional Formula E calendar for the 11th season was announced today, featuring the most races and venues ever scheduled for a season with Miami appearing for the first time since the inaugural season of the series.

For the first time in its history, Formula E will stage a season consisting of 17 races spread over 11 iconic venues.

There will be new race locations in Miami and Diriyah, a double header of races in Tokyo and Monaco – a first for the Principality in any motorsport series – and a return to Jakarta to compliment current city venues.

The Season 11 campaign will get underway in São Paulo on December 7 after Pre-season testing which will take place in Valencia on November 4–7 2024. This will be the first public testing and evaluation of the brand-new GEN3 Evo race car, which is capable of going from 0-60 in 1.82 seconds, making it 36% quicker than the current GEN3.

The first double header of the season will take place on February 14–15, 2025, at a new venue in Diriyah before the series makes its first return to Miami since Season 1 on April 12.

Given the competitive and thrilling nature of Formula E races, Monaco will host two consecutive motor races on the full Circuit de Monaco for the first time in the Principality’s history.

A double header will be held in Tokyo on May 17–18 2025, following the inaugural E-Prix, which closed public roads in the world’s most populated city for a race event for the first time.

The largest Formula E calendar to date also features a return to Jakarta following a one-year break, before a doubleheader finale in ExCeL London.

Speaking of the new calendar, Formula E CEO Jeff Dodds said: “For Season 11 we’re taking electric racing to the next level and doing things never been done before in motorsport.

“Our world-leading GEN3 EVO will debut in front of hundreds of millions of fans around the globe, while adding two brand new locations and combinations of double-headers to grow our sport further.

“The new and improved calendar offers a perfect blend of circuits for drivers to push their upgraded cars to the limit, while staying true to our street racing DNA and the on-track action it produces.”

Co-Founder of Formula E Alberto Longo commented: “We’re thrilled to offer a calendar with some fresh new highlights while building on our legacy locations.

“Returning to Miami gives us a home in one of the US’s most iconic and sports-mad cities, while securing a double-header in Monaco is a dream come true.

“We can’t wait to build on the success of Tokyo and deliver a double-header, while returning to Jakarta and entertaining our huge Indonesian fanbase too.

“With 17 races across the season and our most advanced race car debuting on track, we’re offering our fans cutting-edge sport we could only have hoped for when founding the championship just over 10 years ago.”

One venue has been classified as TBC while final negotiations are ongoing. An official calendar release will be issued in the autumn, following the FIA World Motor Sport Council Meeting.
