About the race
Home to more than 10million people, Jakarta is an upbeat city that moves at a fast pace, from traffic to tower blocks. Founded in the fourth century, the city served as a key trading port in the ancient Kingdom of Sunda, then became a city crucial to the Dutch East Indies under colonial rule, and in the modern era has grown into the financial, cultural, and political capital of Indonesia. Jakarta’s foods and dining options draw upon traditions from Indonesia’s 17,000 islands. You’ll see architectural styles from China, the Netherlands, and the Arab world, along with local Malay and Javanese influences and gleaming postmodern skyscrapers. The city is another new location for the all-electric race series as promises to be an amazing spectacle for teams, drivers and fans alike.
