All ten teams competing in the FIA Formula E Championship have given five full test days at the Donington Park circuit in the UK. No admission is being charged to the fans wishing to attend. All they need to do, to see the fully-electric race cars on the track, is to register at the circuit’s website.
Testing begins on July 3 and 4, while two other days follow the next week on July 9 and 10. The final test session will be held on August 19, three weeks before the season opener in Beijing on September 13. Teams will also have two in-season and two post-season test days with private testing strictly prohibited. Details about these tests are yet to be revealed.
Donington Park has been chosen for testing purposes as the new Formula E headquarters and workshops have been built there. The 44,000 ft² premises was completed mid-May, catering more than 150 staff, engineers and team personnel.
