Electric motor racing series Formula E has confirmed the calendar for its 10th season which includes the addition of Italy’s Misano World Circuit for the first time.
Misano becomes the third new venue for the 2024 season alongside Tokyo and Shanghai and replaces Rome as the Italian round on the schedule.
The Rome ePrix, which was held at the Circuito Cittadino dell'EUR, featured on the Formula E calendar for five seasons between 2018 and 2023.
The Misano track in the Emilia-Romagna region is a fixture in the MotoGP World Championship, and Formula E will race there on April 13 and 14.
Formula E's 10th season will feature a record 17 races.
Elsewhere, the penultimate race weekend will now be a double-header in Portland, US on June 29 and 30.
