Marrakesh is set to host the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship for the fifth time this coming weekend. The Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team has competed in Marrakesh only once before, namely in its debut season of 2019/20. The tenth round of the current campaign will be contested in the city’s Agdal district, just a few minutes away from the medina and the world-famous souks.
The venue for the Marrakesh E-Prix is once again the 2.971 km Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan, which was named after the Crown Prince of Morocco. It is a combination of permanent race track and public roads.
The circuit, which has seven left-hand corners and five right-handers, offers several good overtaking opportunities in the course of a lap, the best of which are in Turns 1 and 7. On the straight leading into Turn 7, the cars reach a top speed of 220 km/h. The activation zone for Attack Mode is on the outside of Turn 3.
