Circuit Guide

The Putrajaya Formula E race, or ePrix, takes place on November 22 and forms the second of 10 races for the inaugural 2014/2015 season. At 2.5km and featuring 12 turns, the street circuit is located just south of the Perdana Putra housing the Prime Minister's Office using much of the main high street and passing several of the city's most recognisable skyscrapers. Drivers will tackle a mixture of straights, slow to medium speed corners, a hairpin plus a tight first-corner chicane that will see them decelerating from 200kph (sixth gear) into a breaking g-force of 1.9.

It has been designed by British architect Simon Gibbons who boasts nine years' experience as a circuit planner for Formula One and more recently played a significant role in the rowing and canoeing venue for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The circuit has the full backing of Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak and has been put together by the FIA, Formula E and local promoter Formula E Malaysia (FEM).

    Destination Guide

    Malaysia boasts a rich, diverse landscape with lush land and ancient rainforests, together with white sandy beaches making it a popular place with tourists. The city of Putrajaya is located around 30 minutes south of the capital Kuala Lumpur which has been recently modernised and is now a cultural melting pot. In Malay, 'putra' means 'prince' while 'jaya' translates as 'success' and despite being a relatively new city, it is growing all the time with many new landmarks and a thriving population.
