Why Bringing Formula E Back to India Matters

   Feb 20,2024

Three races into the 2024 Formula E season, and the competition is heating up. But amid the excitement, the cancellation of the Hyderabad E-Prix has left a seven-week gap in the championship calendar, raising questions about the future of Formula E in India.


The troubles for the Hyderabad race began last year when it was revealed that the organizing team had disbanded, and funding was pulled from the event. Despite efforts to secure its return, political opposition from the new local government in the Telangana region complicated matters, ultimately leading to the cancellation of the race.

The disappointment of losing the Hyderabad E-Prix is felt deeply within the Formula E community. The inaugural event faced challenges, but there's a strong desire to improve and return to India. With its large population and growing market for electric vehicles, India holds significant potential for Formula E's long-term success.

Formula E's ties to India run deep, with teams and sponsors closely linked to the country. Losing the event not only affects the championship's growth but also impacts partners and manufacturers with interests in the Indian market.

Furthermore, the cancellation tarnishes Formula E's image and raises concerns among investors, teams, and fans. While the decision was beyond the organizers' control, its repercussions remain uncertain.

Despite the setback, there's optimism for a future return to India. The untapped market and enthusiastic fanbase make it a promising destination for Formula E. The hope is that discussions and efforts will lead to a comeback sooner rather than later.

In conclusion, bringing Formula E back to India is more than just a race; it's an opportunity to strengthen the championship's presence in a key market and engage with passionate fans. The journey may have hit a roadblock, but the destination remains within reach.
