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. The new Santiago track has the longest corner of the season with Turn 11 stretching 485m. The track also sees a mix of Tarmac and concrete, similar to the Berlin track.

I didn’t actually see the crash until I got home 24 hours later and realised just how crazy it was. Read More »
