The head of the race in Switzerland, Pascal Deron, says the success of the race in Zurich is motivating him to find another Swiss date. He says with the international organizations in the city, it will be an ideal location for a Formula E race. He hopes the first one could be run in 2021.

It won’t be the first time the streets of Geneva have seen a motor race. Formula One cars raced along the ‘Circuit of the Nations’ running between the lake and the Place des Nations between the years of 1946 to 1950.

The next Formula E race in Switzerland will be in Zurich on 22nd June.
