What about the Paris E-Prix circuit ?

With its 1.9km of length, the Circuit des Invalides is not the longest track in the 2018-2019 calendar, in fact, it’s the shortest. In the heart of Paris, birthplace of motorsport, this track is probably the most beautiful of the season because of the sumptuous Parisian scenery of the 7th arrondissement de Paris. Taking place around Les Invalides complex, the circuit goes through Boulevard des Invalides, Avenue de Tourville, Place Vauban, Avenue de Lowendal, Boulevard de la Tour-Maubourg, Avenue de la Motte-Picquet, Rue de Grenelle and the Rond-Point du Bleuet de France. For this special race, a temporary layer of protective asphalt covers original paving stones on parts of the track. The track contains 14 corners and features two long straights. For drivers, turn 2 is really important as you have the main straight just after and you need to carry a lot of speed out of it, turn 4 leads to the tightest part of the track and turn 6 is a very difficult breaking point. Overtaking can be a bit tricky as the track is narrow but when drivers decide to go for it, it’s usually pretty impressive!
