The city wasn’t listed on this year’s calendar, but the all-electric racing series has the wish to further expand in Europe by one race for the second season.

However, Formula E promoter Alejandro Agag has said that they expect to have 12 races next season, with Paris and Montreal showing serious signs of a race happening in the following season.


Copenhagen named itself the ‘European Green Capital’ and therefore Formula E seems to be a perfect fit for the city. TV3 Sport reported that FIA have already visited the Danish capital and have already drawn up a temporary race track around Tivoli Gardens and the West Gate.

The Technical and Environmental Committee of Copenhagen has already approved a proposal from Formula E to have a race on the planned route.
