With organizers unable to source an suitable replacement for the cancelled Montreal double-header, The  New York E-Prix double header in July will now host the 2017-18 season finale.


The championship will now drop to 12 races from 10 events and feature two double-header events – the first already-run at the season opener in Hong Kong.


Montreal Mayor Valerie Plan terminated plans for next year’s ePrix, which was scheduled to conclude the 2017/18 FIA Formula E Championship season.


Plante  – who has run on an ‘anti-Formula E’platform, has labelled the organisation behind the event a “financial fiasco”, with the the non-profit event organizers reportedly $9.5 million CAD into its line of credit.
