Round 4 of the 10-race 2014-2015 FIA Formula E season will take place on a 1.5 mile circuit in the Puerto Madero district just east of the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires.

The 2015 Buenos Aires ePrix will take place on January 10, 2015 and will be the second of two stops in South America for the new series, with the Punta del Este ePrix in Uruguary being held just one month earlier on December 13, 2014.

"Looking at the track, you have to say it’s got a good combination of corners," Mahindra Racing driver Bruno Senna told FIAFormulaE.com. "It’s impossible to tell from the map about undulation, but I think that it could make for an interesting race and will be fun to drive."

"For Buenos Aires to be selected to host a Formula E race alongside worldwide cities such as Beijing, London and Miami demonstrates the commitment of the city to embracing new technologies, clean mobility and respect for the environment," Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri told FIAFormulaE.com. "Buenos Aires is pleased to be at the forefront of this and to be supporting a pioneering initiative such as Formula E."

The revealing of the Buenos Aires layout has followed the trend of most Formula E circuits this season, taking place approximately six months before the race’s date. Following that trend, we should expect to see the layout for the Miami ePrix within the coming months.
