The track in London

The track in London will be located around the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, in East London. The new urban track, located in one of the largest cities in the world will present even more challenges to the participating Teams.

Make sure your vehicle is designed for this type of track, adapting the steering system, brake efficiency and stability. It’s also important that the Driver is well-prepared and trained to drive your vehicle.

Teams must complete 10 laps in 39 minutes or less in order to complete a valid run.
