Formula E to race in Hong Kong, Australia in Season 3
Tokyo, New York Already Under Consideration For Season 4
The third season is expected to kick off with a new race in Montreal – home of the Canadian Grand Prix in Formula One and of Formula E's latest addition, Jacques Villeneuve. The rest of the calendar is still open, and will likely include repeats of many of the events that will carry through from the first and second seasons. But the Hong Kong and Australian rounds would be new additions to the schedule.
The exact location of the Australian race has reportedly yet to be determined, with series organizer Alejandro Agag recently visiting two potential sites – one of which is said to be Sydney, as opposed to Melbourne where F1 holds the Australian Grand Prix. The Hong Kong and Australian rounds would follow the opening race in Montreal and precede any rounds in South America (like the ones organized for the first two seasons in Argentina and Uruguay).
What isn't clear at this point is whether the race in Hong Kong (or, for that matter, the one in Tokyo) would replace or stand in addition to the usual season-opener in Beijing. Looking into the fourth season, conversations are reportedly underway with officials in Tokyo and New York to hold a races there as well.
