The circuit in Cape Town

The circuit in Cape Town
Length 2.921 km
Number of corners 12 (nine left, three right)
Direction Anticlockwise
Layout With 12 corners, long straights and views of Table Mountain, the World Cup stadium and the South Atlantic, thestreet circuit in Cape Town is both one of the fastest on the Formula E calendar and the track with the mostbeautiful vista in Season 9. Over the course of the 2.921-kilometre circuit, the 22 drivers must turn left on nine occasions and negotiate just three right turns. After the start, they head into a fast section with three left turns. The chicane, which incorporates turns four, five and six, and the 90-degree left-hander T7 take the drivers into the long back straight, which is driven flat-out and offers good overtaking opportunities. Corners eight to eleven are followed by another very fast passage, which leads into the start/finish straight.
