Watch Porsche’s Formula E test in Spain

23 April 2019

Porsche has completed testing its car in Calafat, Spain where preparations for the coming season in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship enter their next phase.

The tests follow the successful roll-out of the Porsche Formula E car at the test facility in Weissach at the start of March.

Regular driver Neel Jani (Switzerland) and test and development driver Brendon Hartley (New Zealand) spent three days completing an extensive test programme at Calafat, during which they covered a total distance of more than 1,000 kilometres with the Formula E car.

More intensive tests are scheduled over the coming months for the Porsche Motorsport engineers and Formula E drivers. The goal is to be as well prepared as possible for the first race in Season 6 (2019/20) of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

Malte Huneke, Technical Project Leader, said: “The findings from these tests will allow us to take a big step forward in the development of the Porsche powertrain. The primary focus in this phase of preparations is on reliability, before we then concentrate on performance at a later date. We still have a lot of work ahead of us, but development is completely on track.”

In 2017 Porsche announced it was to leave WEC LMPI class after 2017 season to compete in Formula E.
