DS Virgin Racing and the all-electric Formula E series concludes its Latin America tour with a return to the Punta del Este E-Prix, taking place on the streets of the Uruguayan city on March 17.

The race, which previously appeared in the Formula E calendar during Season One and Two, takes place along the picturesque Playa Brava Beach. Drivers will see a return to the Season Two track configuration, with the purpose-built 2.78km high-speed circuit running the length of the seafront and featuring a variety of quick, tight chicanes.

The team’s all-British driver pairing of Sam Bird and Alex Lynn will be aiming to replicate the pace shown at the Mexico City E-Prix two weeks earlier. DS Virgin Racing is currently in fourth place in the team standings, just four points behind third place.

Team principal Alex Tai said: “The idyllic scenery of the Punta del Este circuit makes it an iconic part of the Formula E calendar and I’m glad to be returning again for Season Four. We’ve prepared well for Uruguay, despite the quick turnaround from Mexico City, and will be hoping to score well in the final race of the Latin American section of the calendar.”
