You Can Watch the First Formula E UK Test Drives for Free from July 3rd

By Gerald Lynch on at

England's Donington Park will play host to the first round of test drives in the UK for this year's inaugural Formula E electric race season. The Spark-Renault SRT_01E Formula E cars of each of the sport's ten teams will tear up the tarmac for five days from July 3rd, with admission for spectators at Donington absolutely free.

The remaining test days will take place on July 4th, 9th and 10th before a final session on August 19th, ahead of the season opener on September 13th in Beijing. Going forward, Donington will become the home for the Formula E series, with construction on a 44,000 square-foot premises nearly finished. It expects to take the first deliveries of each team's cars from the middle of May.
