Organisers of the FIA Formula E Championship have revealed the location and circuit layout for the Paris ePrix.
Taking place on April 23rd, it will be the first European round of the 2015-2016 season and will see the drivers battling it out around the architectural complex of Les Invalides on a 1.93km track.
With 14 turns winding its way past the Army Museum and the Tomb of Napoleon, the cars will reach speeds of up to 140mph. Part of the circuit will be temporarily resurfaced as a quarter of the track is currently covered in cobblestones.
"As a series we are fortunate enough to race in some incredible locations but non more spectacular than the backdrop in the city of Paris," Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag said. "The ethos of Formula E is urban racing in the heart of cities around the world – Paris certainly ticks all those boxes."
Tickets for the Paris ePrix will be available soon with early bird prices starting from €20.
