Are you the next Hermann Tilke?
Formula E team Mahindra Racing have launched a new competition and are challenging fans to design an ePrix around the streets of New Delhi, India.
Following the success of Mahindra Racing’s recent visit to India and the Buddh International Circuit, the team are now turing to fans to help them achieve their dream of a home race.
The team have also received a letter of intent from the local government, pledging their support for a future ePrix in the city.

What are they looking for?
Team Principal Dilbagh Gill sets out the rules as follows:
- The track should be 2-3 kilometres long
- There should be 8-12 turns
- The pitlane and garages should also be included
- It can be a sketch, map, photo or a piece of writing
We want to accelerate this project and get the race to India. We have also reserved some exciting prizes for our favourite ideas, so I am looking forward to see what all the Mahindra Racing fans out there come up with.”

Ali Russell, Director of Media and Communications at Formula E, said: “Formula E is a truly global sport with races spread across four continents. As a new racing series, Formula E acts as a platform to promote sustainable mobility and alternative energy solutions. India is a perfect example of an important emerging market that would raise the profile and production of electric vehicles.”
So what are you waiting for? Get thinking and sharing, and who knows – maybe one day you’ll be witnessing an ePrix on your very own circuit.
Formula E returns on 12th March for the Mexican ePrix.
