Formula E has started the countdown to the start of the ‘Season Seven’. The first season of the electrical event as the FIA World Championship will begin with the usual official pre-season test, test session scheduled between November 28 and December 1 in Valencia. The Ricardo Tormo circuit will thus host a new test of the riders and teams of the series for a 2020-21 season in which the category will seek to regain normality after an atypical campaign marked by the COVID-19 pandemic in which Formula E came to contest six ePrix in Berlin.
With the experience of previous years as the best guarantee, Formula E bets once again on a four-day preseason, although on the 30th there will be no activity on the track. In this way, the twelve teams and 24 drivers competing in the series will ride together for three days on the Spanish circuit. However, the track will not be exactly the same as the previous year, since the contest in communion with the teams has decided to eliminate the chicane that was installed on the finish line. To avoid accidents and maintain this division of the straight, track will be limited with sensors.
