With less than five months to go before the FIA Formula E Championship kicks off in Beijing, China, on September 13, the competition’s key players – including Renault, an official technical partner of FEH and Spark Racing Technology – have already started the countdown to the beginning of the new series.
This week saw two development Spark-Renault SRT-01 Es spend three days being tested at a circuit in Issoire, near Clermont-Ferrand, France, in the hands of Emmanuel Collard, with a view to finalising the specification of the Michelin tyres that will feature during the championship’s inaugural season.
The final day of the session was attended by the four-time Formula 1 World Champion Alain Prost who, in addition to being an ambassador for the Renault brand, also co-owns the French team E-Dams.
As a an expert in the realm of single-seater racing cars, and a pioneer in the world of electric mobility with a comprehensive range of electric zero-emission vehicles, Renault will enable the new championship to benefit from its technological and sporting expertise.
