Formula E To Race In Indonesian Capital For First Time

Formula E is set to race in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta for the first time this coming season, adding to the list of iconic cities featured on the 2019-20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship calendar.

Jakarta joins Seoul and London as a new venue in season six, with the race in Indonesia scheduled to take place on June 6.

A full grid of 24 cars, including rides by new manufacturers Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, will navigate their way around the National Monument in Merdeka Square in the center of the city (subject to circuit homologation and approval of the FIA World Motor Sport Council).

As the fourth most populated country on the planet—behind only China, India and the USA—Indonesia is an important strategic market for Formula E, helping to inspire future generations to embrace clean energy and in turn tackle the devastating effects of air pollution.

The track layout and circuit configuration will be revealed at a later date, along with the updated calendar and full list of dates and destinations for season six following the next FIA World Motor Sport Council meeting in October.
