Formula E has announced that all six pre-season test days will once again be held at Donington Park with free admission to members of the public.

Beginning on Monday, August 10 at the famous Leicestershire circuit, fans will be able to watch all 10 teams as they prepare for the 2015-2016 season for no charge. What’s more, all spectators upon arrival will receive 50% off adult entry to the Donington Park Museum valid for the day they come.

To attend, fans need to complete the registration form here.

As added incentive, one lucky person who registers will receive signed Formula E merchandise together with a pair of 2016 Donington Park season passes (four-wheel car events). But hurry as places are limited.

There’s also the option to enjoy a pitwalk allowing spectators to get up close to the teams and drivers. A pitwalk will be held each day (see schedule below) with access for this priced at just £5 (children aged five and under go free) – payable on the day. Due to space, pitwalk places will be limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis upon arrival.

Following the successful inaugural season, the six test days will be the final time the teams and drivers have to prepare before setting off for the first race in Beijing in October. And with season two seeing the opening up of the regulations for the powertrain, fans will get to see, and hear, the new sounds and speeds of the next generation of Formula E technology.

During the test days, fans will also be able to purchase official Formula E merchandise. For further details click here to view our testing guide including directions on how to get to Donington Park.
