London: London`s Battersea Park will stage the closing race in the inaugural Formula E series, the local council confirmed on Thursday.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: "Formula E is set to be a superb addition to London`s sporting calendar.

"The atmosphere will quite literally be electric and Battersea, which is already booming with the buzz of regeneration, will be alive with the excitement that this new, world-class event will no doubt spark."
