The 2017 New York ePrix I, otherwise known as the 2017 FIA Formula E New York ePrix, is set to be the tenth round of the 2016/17 FIA Formula E Championship, staged in the borough of Brooklyn, New York on the 16th July 2017. The second New York ePrix of the season will be held on the same circuit, with no changes to the field expected overnight despite the fact that the significant absentees had no clashing commitments on Sunday.
The double header in New York was originally set to be the season finale for the 2016/17 Championship, staged two weeks after the series first visit to Canada. However, logistical concerns meant that the two events were swapped, Montreal serving as the finale while New York became the penultimate host of the season. The circuit itself went through several different designs before the FIA settled on one, which centred on the Red Hook neighbourhood of Brooklyn, right on the harbour front.
The final qualifying result for the 2017 New York ePrix II are outlined below:
