DS TECHEETAH return to Santiago de Chile, for the first round of the South American leg and the third round of the 2018/2019 ABB FIA Formula E championship.

The Santiago E-Prix track features 14 turns across the 1.29-mile Parque O’Higgins circuit, situated in the middle of the capital’s leafy streets set under the spectacular Andes mountains.
