Circuit type: Temporary street course
Sanya is the latest city to host Formula E, bringing back racing to the Chinese mainland for the first time since the Beijing street races in seasons 1 and 2.
Relatively little has been announced about the race so far, save for it taking place on a track set "against the backdrop of Haitang Bay", according to a Formula E spokesperson. From an initial circuit diagram released briefly on the Formula E website, the circuit would appear to be set on roads close to the Shangri-La Hotel, with the start line apparently located on a bridge.
As with all Formula E circuits, the final layout will be confirmed following FIA homologation.
Sanya sits on the southern tip of Hainan Island and is in the Chinese mainland-controlled Hainan province. A popular seaside destination for Chinese tourists, the circuit is expected to be a short distance from the beachfront hotels, with the South China Sea as a backdrop.
The Sanya ePrix is located at Sanya, in Hainan Provice, China. Sanya Phoenix International Airport is a 45-minute drive to the west of the circuit area, offering connections to mainland China and destinations in the Asia-Pacific region.
As with all Formula E races, public transportation is expected to be encouraged as the main means of reaching the circuit, with details expected to be confirmed in due course.
