The Circuito Cittadino dell’EUR is a temporary street circuit located in the Esposizione Universale Roma district of the Italian capital of Rome, Italy.[1] Created for the 2018 Rome E-Prix, the Circuito has hosted two rounds of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, and will return for the 2019/20 season.[2]

Formula E History

Rome was originally suggested as a host for the Formula E Championship as early as the inaugural season, although it would not appear on any calendar until the 2017/18 season calendar was released.[3] The location of the first Rome ePrix was later revealed to be in the Esposizione Universale Roma (EUR) district, just a few miles from the infamous Colosseum.[1]

Circuit History

The Circuito Cittadino dell'EUR was created to host the Rome ePrix in 2018 to host the first Rome E-Prix, and has remained unchanged through to the 2019/20 season.

Circuit Layouts

A lap of the Circuito opens with a tight 90° right, followed by a 90° left hander.[4] The field then begin to sweep down-hill through turns three and four, before heavy braking into the 90° left of turn five.[4] A short straight follows before another 90° left forms turn six, with the Attack Mode activation zone found on the exit, on the inside of the circuit.[4]

The field then begin to climb back up hill, with turns seven and eight a mirror of turns four and three respectively.[4] A bump and crest then heralds the arrival of turn nine, a 90° left, before a short straight carries the field into the 90° right of turn ten.[4] Another short blast follows ahead of the turn eleven/twelve chicane, a right-left combination, before the field sweep onto the starting straight next to the Palazzo dei Congressi.[4]

The field then complete a left handed hairpin at turn thirteen, before a 90° right to exit the Palazzo forms turn fourteen.[4] A short straight heralds the arrival of turn fifteen, a 90° left, before a series of chicanes carries the field back to the finish/timing line.[4] Turns sixteen through nineteen form the tighter chicane, with pit-in on the exit of turn nineteen, before the turn 20/21 combination completes the lap.[4]
