 Moscow was an FIA Formula E Championship host city, which held the 2015 Moscow ePrix on the sixth of June 2015.[1] The ePrix was staged on the north bank of the Moskva River, overlooked by the Kremlin, and was set to be followed by a similar event in 2016, but that was ultimately cancelled.[2]

City HistoryEdit

Moscow was founded well before 1147, with that the year the earliest in which the city is definitively referenced.[3] The city was subesquently burned to the ground by the Mongols in 1237-8 (after the construction of a defensive wall known as the 'Kremlin'), a fate that the city would face numerous times in its history.[3] The city itself served as Russia's capital, on and off, from the reign of Ivan III after the overthrow of the Mongols.[3]

Sporting wise, Moscow's most infamous incident was its hosting of the 1980 Summer Olympics, which remains one of the biggest events hosted in the city.[3] The city will also host the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with many football clubs located inside the city boundaries.[3] The FIA also sought to include Russia in the calendar after the inaugural 2014 Russian Grand Prix held in Sochi.[4] The country has also hosted the World Touring Car Championship and DTM at other, purpose built, facilities since 2013.[4]

Formula E HistoryEdit

Moscow was a late addition to the calendar during the inaugural 2014/15 Formula E Season, set to be held on the sixth of June.[1] Moscow's inclusion in the Formula E calendar follows the FIA's decision to hold a Grand Prix in Sochi in 2014 as part of the Formula One Championship.[1] After a successful debut, which saw Nelson Piquet Jr. claim victory, Moscow was included on the 2015/16 season calendar, only to be cancelled late in the season after disputes over using the roads in the Russian capital.[2]

Circuit HistoryEdit

A 2.39km (1.49mi) circuit awaits the drivers, containing thirteen turns in an anti-clockwise direction.[4] The start/finish straight runs along the bank of the Moskva river, with the first corner a tight right hand turn towards Staraya Square which the circuit runs around.[4] The circuit then heads towards Red Square and the Kremlin, with a tight chicane followed by a sweeping curve, double hairpin and final 90 degree right hander.[4]
