The test takes place at Circuit Ricardo Tomo, which is about a 25-minute drive from Valencia. The circuit has held pre-season Formula E testing since 2017 and held an ePrix in 2021 as the ePrix in Paris was cancelled.

Formula E Testing Live Times

To follow the testing, it’s best to check out the official Formula E website, which will have display the live times for all the practice sessions, as well as extra coverage throughout the testing period.

What To Look Out For In Testing?

Whilst testing can often be quite tedious to watch, there are some interesting things to look out for ahead of the new Formula E season.

New generation cars & new teams

This is the first time we will see the brand new Gen3 cars in action. The Gen3 cars are a massive step up from the previous versions of Formula E cars, so it will be interesting to see how they perform.

This is also a huge task for the teams to get up to speed with the new car. On top of that, we also have two brand new teams this season in Maserati and McLaren. This is also the first season in which Nissan will be fully in control of their Nissan racing team.

New liveries on display

One thing to note about the new Gen3 cars is their looks. They are very striking, with long sharp lines making it really stand out. This unique shape of the car will make for some amazing livery designs, as we have seen from the new Nissan livery and the Maserati.
