Formula E Completes Full-Event Simulation Ahead Of First Ever Race
Formula E has completed two full-event simulations as the world’s first all-electric single-seater championship gears up for its first race in Beijing on Sept. 13. Both events took place at Leicestershire’s Donington Park, where a temporary pitlane and pitboxes were assembled to mimic those that will be in place at the street circuits the series will visit. Accreditation procedures, operational and IT infrastructures and even TV broadcasts were also tested. During the second simulation, for the first time the 10 teams ran all four of their cars as the two non-qualifying sessions, qualifying and an endurance test were completed to the schedule that will take place at the races. While a number of issues were encountered, overall the events were considered a success (Formula E).
