Whilst the motor racing eyes of the world are firmly fixed on Japan this weekend to see which of the Mercedes drivers pulls ahead of the rest, we at Discovering London are left to ponder the fate of Formula E.
For the past two years the event has held a London race in Battersea Park but the ultimate aim for the organisers is to run the race in central London. So instead of racing past the Peace Pagoda and along the Thames, the cars would be careering down Whitehall, past Horseguards Parade, via Parliament Square to Birdcage Walk and the ultimate finishing straight of the Mall with Buckingham Palace in the background. It's the end point for the London Marathon and where the Olympic cycling road races ended so why not the excitement of motor racing.
We wouldn't dream of trying to walk the course whilst the event was taking place but we can take you to the all sights that the world would see in a couple of hours. And for those who've done all that before then have you seen Battersea Park? Spend a couple of hours with us on a peaceful amble in one of London's most beautiful spaces where you're most likely to see tricycles, baby buggies and skateboarders enjoying the autumn sunshine.
