The 2017 Brussels ePrix has officially been cancelled, after months of uncertainty surrounding Belgium’s inaugural ePrix.
The event will be replaced by an extra race at the Berlin ePrix on Sunday, making it the third double header on the current calendar.
Final confirmation of Brussels been cancelled had been expected, and was finally confirmed following Thursday’s World Motor Sport Council in Geneva.
Possible alternative venues were discussed including Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. However, it fell through and it’s unlikely it will be joining the Formula E calendar any time soon.
Eventually, it was concluded that an additional race at Berlin Tempelhof, would be the best solution. The double header is scheduled to take place June 10-11 and will maintain the 12 race calendar.
The actual track layout is still be confirmed for the Berlin ePrix, Formula E last raced around the track in 2015 but was forced to find an alternative location last season due to the refugee crisis.
