The support NXT Gen Cup series has been cancelled for Season 10 by Formula E ahead of this weekend’s scheduled debut in Misano.

The NXT Gen Cup is the world’s first 100% electric junior touring car cup and was due to make its debut on the Formula E schedule at this weekend’s Misano E-Prix double-header. However, due to unexpected constraints faced by the support series, it will no longer be an addition on the World Championship calendar in Season 10.

“NXT GEN’s participation at the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship has been cancelled for Season 10 due to unexpected constraints faced by the support series,” a Formula E spokesperson stated. The championship has already started amending its busy timetable to reflect the changes, making sure that motorsport fans will have plenty of entertainment during Formula E’s first visit to the iconic Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.

“Formula E has already begun implementing positive adjustments to ensure the continuity and success of upcoming events, beginning with a revised schedule for the Misano E-Prix to ensure minimal disruption to fans and expanded activities that include: pit-lane autograph sessions, additional pit walks, and expanded promotional track activities. Formula E remains committed to nurturing the next generation of talent through FIA Girls on Track and other impactful initiatives for young people.”
