Formula E Headquarters At Donington Park To Be Completed Within Four Weeks

The £5.7M ($9.6M) headquarters of the electric racing series Formula E, which is being built in Leicestershire, "is set to be completed within the next four weeks," according to the LEICESTER MERCURY. Beginning on July 3, the 10 Formula E teams "will be given five full test days, with each one open to the public free of charge, allowing fans who pre-register via the Donington Park website unprecedented access to see and hear the 200kw (270bhp) Spark-Renault single-seaters in action." The remaining tests at the Leicestershire circuit will take place on July 4, 9 and 10, with the final session on Aug. 19 -- "three weeks before the season opener in Beijing" on Sept. 13 (LEICESTER MERCURY, 4/15).
