The ABB FIA Formula E Championship will be showcased at January’s 30th edition of Autosport International shortly after its 2019-20 season kicks off in Saudi Arabia.

It will mark the first time that the electric championship has participated in Autosport International, which will be held on Jan. 9-12 at the NEC in Birmingham.

The show’s attendees will have the opportunity to get up close with cars and personalities from the Formula E paddock, as well as to purchase tickets for July’s return of the London E-Prix.

“I can’t wait until January to see the ABB FIA Formula E Championship at Autosport International for the very first time, just after we kick-off our busiest and most competitive season to date,” commented Formula E’s chief marketing officer Jerome Hiquet.

“The show has long been known to host the world’s most technologically advanced racing cars, so it’s fitting to have Formula E showcasing the future of motorsport.

“After the Birmingham event, the next time Formula E will be in the UK will be part of a British summer of sport on July 25-26, 2020.

“It’ll be a memorable weekend, as not only will we be crowning a champion, but exciting electric racing returns to the capital using a unique indoor/outdoor circuit at ExCeL London.

“With five British drivers on the grid we could even see a winner on home soil. Autosport International is a fantastic opportunity for tens of thousands of fans to experience Formula E early in the new year.”
