All you need to know about pre-season testing at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia, Spain from October 15 -18, 2019.
After DS Techeetah's Jean-Eric Vergne scooped his second driver title in New York back in July, the teams within the ABB FIA Formula E Championship have been busily working behind the scenes to prepare for the next campaign in the all-electric racing series. Ahead of the season opener in Saudi Arabia on November 22, we're looking forward to pre-season testing at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia, Spain from October 15 -18, 2019. Here's all you need to know.
Using the same layout as previous seasons, testing will take place every day with the exception of Thursday, October 17. The circuit will see all 12 teams and 24 cars and drivers as they test together for the first and last time ahead of the season opener in Saudi Arabia on November 22. Each day will be broken into two sessions, with a morning run taking place from 09:00 - 12:00 and an afternoon session between 14:00 - 17:00.
Welcoming newcomers Porsche and Mercedes-Benz EQ to the paddock, the line up will be the most complete and competitive in the series' history, with 12 teams going head to head on the streets of the world's most progressive cities over the course of the season.
Taking place at the Ricardo Tormo circuit outside Valencia, Spain for the third time in Formula E's history, pre-season testing will be open to accredited media only.
