Formula E season 11 calendar has just been announced. The provisional calendar is set to be the biggest yet, with 17 races taking place across 11 locations. Sadly, the series does not seem to include a stop in Cape Town as it did two years ago. The season starts in December this year and will run until late July 2025.

Several locations on the calendar will host two races on the same weekend, Saudi Arabia, Japan and Monaco among them. Diriyah in Saudi Arabia and Miami will both host their season 11 races in new locations. The latter will take place at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, a regular on the Nascar and Indy calendars. The calendar does have one unaccounted for slot in March, which is around the same time the event was held in South Africa before.

We reached out to Iain Banner, the chairman of e-movement and the man responsible for bringing the first Formula E race to Southern Africa for comment. He had the following to share with us:

“With the cost to stage the 2025 Formula E Grand Prix having risen to €15 million ( R300m), the race has simply become unaffordable for Cape Town. With the significant economic impact that it delivers for South Africa, we are hopeful that the national Departments of Sport, Tourism and Environmental Affairs will see fit to co-fund the race so that it can become an ongoing occupant of the annual Formula E global calendar.”

New Car

Formula E Season 11 will also see the debut of the Gen3 Evo racecar. The new racer is the quickest accelerating single-seater FIA racecar with a 0-100 sprint time of 1,82 seconds. Interestingly, the Formula E Gen3 Evo features all-wheel-drive which will be available during qualifying duels, race starts, and attack mode stints.
