Circuit History

Formula E is bringing its all-electric racers to the streets of the Chiléan capital in 2018, marking the first major race on the streets of Santiago since a non-championship Grand Prix at the end of 1950.

The 12-turn circuit passes through three districts of the city - Santiago, Providencia and Recoleta - and also straddles the River Mapocho. Stretching 1.53miles (subject to FIA homologation), drivers will line up on the grid along Avenue Santa Maria before crossing the Mapocho. Once across the bridge, the course heads back along the river and into and around Plazza Baquedano, before cutting through Forestal Park to return to the start/finish line.

The event is being promoted by Chiléan racing legend Eliseo Salazar, who believes the course will prove to be good for racing.

He says: "It will be a challenge for the drivers to race through the middle of the city but it goes through some of the most beautiful parts. The track goes around Plazza Baquedano, which is a very popular attraction - it's where people go to celebrate victory in sporting events, so it's nice to see it included for the race.

"We're very proud because this will be the very, very first FIA sanctioned world championship round in Chilé."

The first Antofagasta Minerals Santiago E-Prix takes place on February 3, 2018.

Getting There

Comodoro Arturo Merino Benítez International, around 16 minutes' drive from the centre of the city on its western fringes.

The track is based around the Parque Forestal and Baquedano Square. The area is well served by public transport (which is the recommended way to reach the E-Prix), with Metro stations at Bellas Artes and Baquedano within easy walking distance.
