Team ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport prepared for the new Formula E season in tests at Donington. Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi completed 269 trouble-free laps on three days on the 4.003-kilometer track in the United Kingdom. While the four race cars will be loaded and flown to Asia next week, the drivers are familiarizing themselves on the simulator with the short city street circuit in Hong Kong with a length of barely two kilometers. There the first in a total of twelve races will be held on October 9. At the beginning of the third season of the electric racing series, Audi has intensified its involvement in the only German team and is planning to incorporate Formula E into a factory-backed motorsport program as of the 2017/2018 season.
