The smart EQ fortwo e-cup has revealed its 2020 schedule and is set to visit new tracks during the third season of the Italian single-make electric touring car series.
The six-event schedule released on Friday is for the ACI Sport Italian Alternative Energy Speed Championship, the official name of the original smart EQ fortwo e-cup series.
Plans are in place for additional events, and possible additional series, to be held this year, likely also under the smart EQ fortwo e-cup banner but at this stage not using the ACI Sport Italian Championship status unlike the main series.
As part of the Italian motorsport federation’s official electric racing championship, competitors will visit five different circuits throughout the country across six weekends.
Each weekend will consist one two races, with grids expected of around 20 cars as last season.
The season will begin at Autodromo dell’Umbria in Magione before heading to Misano as a support race to the FIA European Truck Racing Cup.
Back-to-back rounds at Vallelunga will be held either side of a summer break. The series’ second visit to the track near Rome will be in support of the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.
Two new tracks will complete the season in October, with rounds at Pergusa, on the island of Sicily, and at Varano in north-central Italy.
Demonstration events will also be held at two of Italy’s biggest motorsport events, the Rome E-Prix and the Rally Italia Sardegna.
It will mark the smart e-cup’s third appearance at the ABB FIA Formula E Championship’s Rome E-Prix, and second at the FIA World Rally Championship’s Italian round on Sardinia.
