Misano has finally emerged as Formula E’s new Italian venue for 2024, agreeing a deal to replace the popular Rome street circuit
Misano has been chosen as the new venue for Formula E in Italy, replacing the Rome street circuit. The Circuit Marco Simoncelli, known for hosting MotoGP races, will host the double-header round in April. Misano was preferred over Imola and Vallelunga due to its modern infrastructure and ample space for TV and VIP facilities. The decision to change the track was prompted by safety concerns following a multi-car accident at the Rome circuit. Misano is viewed as a temporary solution, and Formula E is already exploring future locations for an Italian host city. Additionally, a second race in Portland is set to be added to the 2024 calendar, making it an 11-event and 17-race championship. A potential third edition of the Jakarta E-Prix has been discounted for 2024, but it is expected to return in the following season. No solution has been found to avoid scheduling conflicts with the Berlin E-Prix.
