MOSCOW, May 6. /TASS/. Round nine of the 2016 FIA Formula E Championship, scheduled for June 4 in the Russian capital of Moscow, has been cancelled, the press service of the Formula E racing announced in its statement on Friday.
According to the statement, "together with the local authorities [in Moscow], Formula E has taken the decision not to race in the Russian capital due to recent and unforeseen circumstances related to road closures."
Formula E Chief Executive Alejandro Agag said: "While it is unfortunate news not to race in Moscow on June 4, we looked at a number of alternative options as a replacement but were not able to find a viable solution on that specific date."
"We explored all possibilities including returning to Monaco, but regrettably couldn’t organize the change of venue on such short notice," the statement quoted Agag as saying.
Formula E is a new FIA single-seater championship and the world's first fully-electric racing series. The inaugural championship of Formula E racing was held in 2014-2015 and Moscow served as one of the world’s venues last year for the championship. The Moscow ePrix was held on June 6 last year.
