Formula E extends Paris race deal

Electric car-racing series Formula E has announced the extension of its race-hosting agreement with Paris.

Formula E has raced in the French capital since its second season, 2015-16, and chief executive Alejandro Agag said a new three-season deal has been signed covering the 2019-20 to 2021-22 campaigns.

The 2018-19 Paris E-Prix is due to take place on April 27, with the event held on a track developed in the historic Les Invalides area of the capital.

“(Including) this year onwards, we’ve got four years of guaranteed Formula E in Paris,” Agag said, according to the Autosport website. “It really is great news. I’d like to thank Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, the whole team from the city of Paris and all departments of the French state, which help us a lot.”
