The Seoul Street Circuit is a temporary street circuit, set to be assembled in the Jamsil Sports Complex in Seoul, South Korea, in order to host the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.[1] Set to host the inaugural Seoul E-Prix on the 3 May 2020, the Seoul Street Circuit is set to run around the site of the XXIV Summer Olympics, with a section of the circuit within the Seoul Olympic Stadium.[2]

Formula E History

The South Korean capital of Seoul was first announced as a host of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship on 30 November 2018, becoming the first confirmed round of the 2019/20 season.[1] The date of the inaugural Seoul E-Prix was revealed as the 3 May 2020, with the Seoul Street Circuit revealed in July 2019.[2]

Circuit History

The Seoul Street Circuit is to be established within the Jamsil Sports Complex, an area of Seoul that was built to host the 1988 Summer Olympics.[2] The planned circuit will pass several of the venues built for the XXIV Olympiad, while also running inside the Seoul Olympic Stadium itself.[2]

Circuit Layout

A lap of the proposed Seoul Street Circuit opens with a 90° left, followed after a short straight and the pit exit by a long apex right.[2] Another straight follows before the field enter turns three and four, a left-right chicane, before the field plunge into the Olympic Stadium via a kink at turn five.[2] Another straight brings the field to the opposite side of the Stadium, turning through a hairpin right, before a sweep carries the field across the northern end of the Stadium.[3]

Turn seven carries the field in a long right-hand loop, with turn eight a shallow left hand curve matched by a similar turn nine.[2] Turns ten and eleven serve as a right-left chicane, turning the field back out of the Stadium running parallel to how they entered.[2] Turn twelve appears as little more than a kink, before turn thirteen turns the field through 90° to explore the rest of the Sports Complex.[2]

Turns fourteen and fifteen serve as long sweeping curves around the Jamsil Indoor Swimming Pool, before a 90° at turn sixteen opens the field onto the eastern side of the Complex.[2] A long straight follows before a heavy braking point at turn seventeen, another 90°, with a shallow chicane putting the field onto the start straight.[2] Turn eighteen follows as a hairpin right, before a short blast to turn nineteen, a 90° left, carries the field back onto the finish straight.[2]
