Rome’s first EPRIX made its debut in the EUR district on Saturday 14th April 2018 as the 18th city to host ABB FIA Formula E, the world’s first all-electric racing series. Circuto Cittadino dell’EUR, a challenging track of 2.84 km in length with a total of 21 turns, where the start/finish line was located on Via Cristoforo Colombo and where the cars were racing around the obelisk in Piazza Guglielmo Marconi. The race was won by the British Sam Bird of DS Virgin Racing.

The initiative was welcome by Virginia Raggi, the Mayor of Rome, who claimed “Rome is a key protagonist in the international landscape, with EUR setting the scene for the first Formula E race in Italy. The future means sustainable mobility, innovation and above all respect for the environment”.
