FIA Formula E Championship is gradually building up to the new competition’s
first race in Beijing, China, on September 13. An initial series of development
tests, which went perfectly at a variety of circuits in January, allowed the
car’s architecture and systems to be checked, and the first batch of electric
Spark-Renault SRT_01E racing cars have now been delivered to the championship’s
10 registered teams at Donington, England, on May 15, in keeping with the
timeframe set for Spark Racing and Renault!
Patrice Ratti (General Manager, Renault Sport Technologies): “We are delighted
to have worked alongside Spark ahead of the delivery of the first 10
Spark-Renaults to the Formula E teams. It was no mean feat because this is the
world’s first small-scale production-produced single-seater electric racing car
to deliver such a high level of performance. To have succeeded is another
illustration of the passion that fires the teams of experts who work at Renault
Sport, as well as of their grasp of advanced electric vehicle technologies.”
Vasseur (President, Spark Racing Technologies): “The development, fine-tuning
and production of such an innovative racing car as the Spark-Renault SRT_01E in
such a short lapse of time was a challenge that we are particularly proud to
have risen to. The cooperation we enjoyed with our various partners was
remarkable and the input from the teams at Renault Sport was especially
decisive in enabling us to develop a car that is reliable, safe and
competitive. We are delighted to have reaped the fruit of our collaboration
