Moscow ePrix 2016 Cancelled due to Unforeseen Road Closures

Formula E has today confirmed that round nine of the FIA Formula E Championship will not take place in Moscow on 4th June 2016. Together with the local authorities, Formula E has taken the decision not to race in the Russian capital due to recent and unforeseen circumstances related to road closures. Alejandro Agag, Formula E CEO said:

“While it is unfortunate news not to race in Moscow on June 4, we looked at a number of alternative options as a replacement but were not able to find a viable solution on that specific date. We explored all possibilities including returning to Monaco, but regrettably couldn’t organise the change of venue on such short notice. I’d like to express my thanks to HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, Mr. Michel Boeri, and the Automobile Club de Monaco who did their utmost to see Formula E return to the streets of the Principality for season two. We will now focus on the three remaining races in Berlin and the double-header in London, which I’m sure will deliver a thrilling conclusion in the battle for the championship.”

The remainder of the championship will be as follows:

  • Rd 8 – Berlin ePrix – 21 May 2016
  • Rd 9 – London ePrix – 2 July 2016
  • Rd 10 – London ePrix – 3 July 2016
