Autosport Forums' 4th Annual Official Unofficial Formula E Street Circuit Design Competition™
brought to you by erstwhile Hispania sponsors THIS COULD BE YOU and THIS IS A COOL SPOT
It's that time of year again, ladies and gents. As your winner last year, it falls to me to host this year's competition; it's time to get your Google Maps on (other mapping providers are available), get your creative juices flowing, and get designing a street circuit for the new Formula E Gen 3 cars to race on. Theoretically, of course. Unless Hermann Tilke or Carsten Tilke or even Alexander Wurz are among us. Anyway. Using your preferred mapping service, you'll need to propose a feasible (though not necessarily conventional!) street circuit for Formula E to race on.
2019 - Stockholm ePrix - FredrikB
2020 - Jacksonville ePrix - maximilian
2021 - Tokyo ePrix - Frood
Most of the rules are the ground rules set out every year since inauguration, taken from the previous years' threads:
1. The length of your circuit should somewhere in the region of 1.5 to 3.0 miles (2.5 - 5 km) in length preferred, but not essential.
2. The layout should be original - it should not be too similar to any circuit currently or previously in use.
3. The circuit should be temporary and within the official city limits of your chosen location (make of that what you will).
4. Entries should at least specify a route, the direction and start-line/pit-lane locations. Further details (grandstands, etc.) are welcome but not necessary.
5. Entries should take the form of an aerial-view image of your circuit and a short description of the area and how you imagine the event to be held. A few pictures from Google Street View is a nice addition too, but not mandatory.
6. Entries should have some link or relevance to climate change.
And, in an effort to expand our horizons this year, I propose the following:
7. The circuit should ideally be placed in a location (country, region or city) preferably with less of a motorsports heritage. Formula E is expanding to cities with less of a link with motorsports in order to reach new markets, with circuits like those in Jakarta and Hyderabad on the 2023 schedule. Where else could Formula E be missing out on?
The deadline is the now-tradition Christmas deadline midnight GMT on 24th December. The voting thread will then be started on 26th December and run until midnight GMT on 14th January 2023, the day of the Mexico City ePrix.
