The 2020 Marrakesh ePrix was a Formula E electric car race to be held at Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan in Marrakesh on 29 February 2020. The race was a replacement for the 2020 Hong Kong ePrix, which was cancelled due to pro-democracy protests.[1]

Report

Background

On 15 June 2019, Formula E announced the provisional calendar for the 2019-20 season, in which Marrakesh was not included.[2] The final calendar, which was revealed in October, saw multiple date changes with Marrakesh coming in to replace Hong Kong.[1] Marrakesh would also host the third annual rookie test a day after the event, where each team got to nominate two drivers who have not officially competed in the series.[3]

Schedule changes

Free Practice 1 was moved to Friday afternoon due to late sunrise in the location. A typical early-in-the-morning Saturday start proved to be a bad decision for last year's event, which caused low visibility during the first practice session.[4]

Rookie Test

The traditional rookie test took place the day after the race.
