The Circuito Cittadino dell’EUR is a temporary street circuit located in the Esposizione Universale Roma district of the Italian capital of Rome, Italy. 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.
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. 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.
A lap of the Circuito opens with a tight 90° right, followed by a 90° left hander. The field then begin to sweep down-hill through turns three and four, before heavy braking into the 90° left of turn five. 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.
The field then begin to climb back up hill, with turns seven and eight a mirror of turns four and three respectively. 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. 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.
The field then complete a left handed hairpin at turn thirteen, before a 90° right to exit the Palazzo forms turn fourteen. 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. 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.
