The Fédération Internationale de I’Automobile (FIA) recently announced that Cape Town was to be the first southern African city to host the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E World Championship Series.

In response, Tourvest Destination Management has partnered with E-Movement (Pty) Ltd, the promoter and rights holders for the Cape Town E-Prix, to establish Cape Town E-Prix Travel as the official travel partner to the Cape Town E-Prix and E-Fest Cape Town. Fans will be able to book bespoke spectator packages for both events through Cape Town E-Prix Travel.

The highly anticipated race takes place on February 26, 2022, in the 21/22 season 8 calendar.

“As the official promoter and rights holder to the Cape Town E-Prix, E-Movement has been working with various stakeholders both globally as well as in South Africa to ensure that this inaugural ABB FIA Formula E World Championship Series event will not only establish Cape Town as a leading motorsport destination, but also a leader in e-mobility and sustainable energy,” says Bruce Parker-Forsyth, Managing Director of E-Movement (Pty) Ltd.

“We are very excited to be part of this event which means so much for South Africa,” says Illana Pereira, MD of the Sports and Leisure division of Tourvest Destination Management. “Tourvest Destination Management has always been at the forefront of innovation in the tourism sector, driven by our commitment to the development of strategic partnerships and we believe that through this partnership with E-Movement, we can not only make a sustainable and measurable difference in Cape Town but also South Africa as a whole.”
