Formula E Season Two Testing Schedule Announced

Mid 2014 saw Formula E move into its new headquarters at Donington Park and with that the delivery of the first ten cars. Soon after, pre-season testing commenced and as everything was new it was an interesting time for the drivers, pit crews, management, teams and pretty much every other aspect you could think of.

The first Formula E season finishes in London with the last two ePrix being held at Battersea park over two consecutive days on the 27 & 28 June 2015.

After only a month gap since those final races of the first season, teams will be busy preparing for on-track testing once more at Donington Park.

Drivers and teams are now not quite so green (please excuse the pun) to electric motorsport, but new this year will be eight powertrains which have been developed for season two.

The 2015 testing schedule has been broken down into three two-day tests, concluding on 25th August.

The last day of testing will be open and free to members of the public. Further details regarding registration will be announced in due course.
