Formula E Returns To The BBC

November 14, 2019

Formula E will return to the BBC for its sixth season, with every race available live and free-to-air on BBC online platforms and two races to be shown live on BBC channels.

As well as the whole season being broadcast online, Formula E fans will be able to watch both the Marrakesh E-Prix in Morocco on February 29 and Rome E-Prix on April 4 on the BBC’s TV network channels.

Jerome Hiquet, Chief Marketing Officer at the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, said: “We want the ABB FIA Formula E Championship to be accessible to the widest possible audience and with five British drivers on the grid, Formula E fans in the UK will need to choose who they are getting behind when racing returns to London in July next summer.

“The British contingent may outnumber the other famous names in the field, but they face stiff competition with the arrival of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, as well as the current F2 champion Nyck De Vries choosing to join Formula E for the start of the new season.”

Formula E made its terrestrial debut on the BBC last season when the Hong Kong E-Prix was shown live on BBC Two in March, with the early morning race attracting more than half a million viewers across all linear and digital platforms. All Formula E races this season will also be broadcast on Eurosport, with select events also shown live and free-to-air on Quest.
