category cars-electric FIA dispute the third round of their
calendar after more than a month of inactivity. The ePrix of Punta del Este
it will continue dissolving a championship that comes with significant changes to this test,
disputed to the shores of the sea. The layout is one of the most complex and technical
the calendar, for what the riders are traveling to Uruguay with the desire to provide
a good show. Luca di Grassi will start this ePrix as a leader
standings after win in Putrajaya.
The path of Punta del Este is located in the picturesque
Playa Brava, has a length of 2,785 yards and 20 curves. A circuit
complex, with many chicanes, curves ninety degrees and a slow part in
the last sector of the track. In general lines, pianos and the walls become
enemies of the pilots, or at least it was so during the first ePrix held
at this track. By that time, Sébastien Buemi was the winner of the test.
The pilot that wants to put a relay to the swiss must complete a total of 20
laps during the race.
For this third event of the calendar, the Formula E arrives
with notable changes and, above all, with a significant absence. Although it was a
secret, this week it was confirmed that Trulli Formula E Team

will a manufacturer of weight as Jaguar, immediately the category is
left with 18 cars on track. Among those who appear in Uruguay,
there is also a change of pilot. Nick Heidfeld gives his seat in the Mahindra to
Olivier Rowland. The british replaced the German for the injury that drags
