History

The track was designed by Formula E's London event team and British architect Simon Gibbons. Wandsworth Council approved of the circuit and the double race on 19 February 2015.[1]

The circuit was criticized for being too narrow and too bumpy, with Jérôme d'Ambrosio suffering broken suspension.[2] A last-minute change to turn 1 had to be implemented and the race had to be started under a pace car.[3]

There was controversy over the park circuit taking place in a Grade II* listed park, with opposition to the disruption the races and subsequent build period would cause to a free public space. Around the race weekends a majority of the park was closed to the public for four days with a three-week disruption period. The local community set up a group to oppose any further races in the park.[4]

In June 2016 Formula E announced that, on the basis of understanding between Formula E and the Battersea Park Action Group, Formula E will not return.[5]
