The 2020 ABB FIA Formula E Championship is set in Seoul Olympic Park with all 24 cars and drivers making their way around the circuit on May 3, 2020.

Seven turns are housed inside the Olympic stadium and there will be some of Seoul’s best-known sights that will be showcased in the bespoke city street circuit.
