Phaceless Photographer’s top 20 shots from Berlin

Formula E has fast built a reputation for having some of the most stunningly unique venues, and the Tempelhof Airport Street Circuit is a perfect example.

Using the disused airport was an absolute stroke of genius, some of you might not know this, but Germany is no stranger to races being held at airports and airfields, with Diepholz and Wunstorf both hosting DTM races during its 1990’s golden era.

Tempelhof has its long curved terminal building standing over the circuit, this may sound like a minor detail but when combined with year’s later race time, the circuit was transformed into the motorsport equivalent of the Dallas Cowboys Stadium towards the end of the race when the sun began to set; with the sunlight intruding through the terminal building’s windows and over the track.
