Electric single-seater racing series Formula E has announced the relocation of its global logistics headquarters from the British Donington Park circuit to the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain.

In addition to the relocation, Formula E will expand the circuit, transforming it into a development hub for the Formula E World Championship.

The location was chosen due to its proximity to a major port, optimizing freight routes, and enhancing Formula E’s ability to leverage sustainable sea freight options.

The Valencia location will also become the series’ permanent test track and development center, hosting track days, featuring developmental, current, and previous-generation cars.

During Formula E’s initial relocation phase, the logistics base will move to a temporary structure adjacent to the circuit’s public entrance.

Alberto Longo, co-founder and chief championship officer of Formula E, said: “This move to the Ricardo Tormo Circuit is an important step for the championship in maintaining the most sustainable freight routes possible while using it as a base for developing future generations of our race cars.

“Having a permanent center at the circuit in Valencia will feel to me and many at Formula E like home, while keeping us at the cutting edge of EV technology as well as showcasing our unique sport to guests and future championship partners.”

The partnership between the Valencian track and Formula E began in 2018 with pre-season testing and a double-header of races amid the pandemic.

The event was the first time Formula E raced in Spain and the championship’s first race on a conventional, permanent racetrack.
