Marrakesh wants to organize an ePrix Formula E


The Formula And enjoys great health and it is for this reason that the category is looking for new scenarios of competition for the next few seasons. One of the major goals of the series electric is able to play an ePrix in New York, although Canada, Australia and Switzerland also have applications to host a test. But they are not the only candidates, because Stéphane Roux is in negotiations with Formula E to organize an ePrix of Marrakech. The moroccan city is already well-known in the motor world by organizing one of the rounds of the World Touring car (WTCC).

Stéphane Roux is the main promoter of the race of the WTCC in Marrakech, which has been erected as most responsible at the time of trying to bring Formula E to Morocco. In statements to ‘’, Roux claims to be in negotiations with the series directed by Alejandro Agag to lead the category electrical up to the International Circuit Moulay El Hassan. This urban layout of 4.6 kilometres and it has hosted a round of the WTCC since 2009, while for 2016 we are working on a track just under 3 miles, which may well serve for the World of Cars and the Formula itself E.

The two big bets that handles Stéphane Roux to the time of trying to convince the representatives of the Formula E lie on the same Circuit International Moulay El Hassan. Unlike other proposals, Morocco already has a street circuit designed, outlined and approved by the FIA, which has been shown to be very fast and attractive for its combination of long straights, heavy braking and the chicanes. In addition, the ePrix of Marrakech would be the first test of the Formula And in african soil, which is certainly a great interest for the organizers of the event.
