The Miami ePrix is a former motorsport event, that was hosted as the fifth round of the 2014/15 FIA Formula E Championship on the Biscayne Bay Street Circuit in Miami, Florida, USA.[1] The first ever ePrix to be staged in North America, the Miami ePrix was staged once on 14 March 2015, and would not be staged again after issues regarding the location of the circuit.[2]

City History

An indigenous site before the arrival of the Europeans in 1556, the Miami area became the key city in the state of Florida, with Britain and Spain alternating in their control of the emerging town until the 1800s.[3] Officially incorporated as a city in 1896, Miami was named for the nearby Miami River, with the railroad built within the city.[3] Miami is also one of the fastest growing cities in history, with the population exploding from 1,000 in 1896 to 5.5 million in 2006.[3]

Formula E History

The 2015 Miami ePrix was held on 14 March 2015, becoming the first ePrix to be held in North America having been included in the first ever Formula E calendar.[4] After Jean-Eric Vergne became the first ever pole sitter Miami, Nicolas Prost took victory and the lead in the championship, with Scott Speed coming second on his debut.[5]

Circuit History

The Miami ePrix circuit was revealed a few weeks prior to the start of the meeting, centred around the American Airlines Stadium, home of Miami Heat.[1] The circuit itself was not a spectacular hit, measuring 2.169 km (1.348 mi) and was almost exclusively made up of 90° turns in downtown Miami.[1]
