About the race
Surprising, cosmopolitan, energetic, sophisticated and worldly, Santiago is a city of syncopated cultural currents, madhouse parties, expansive museums and top-flight restaurants. Head out for the day to take in the museums, grand architecture and pedestrian malls of the Centro, before an afternoon in one of the gorgeous hillside parks that punctuate the city’s landscape. With a growing economy, renovated arts scene and plenty of eccentricity to spare, Santiago is an old-guard city on the cusp of a modern-day renaissance and a welcome addition to the calendar. Last year’s race saw Sam Bird secure victory – continuing his feat of recording wins in every season of Formula E to date – so can the Envison Virgin Racing team do it again?
