[YesAuto Racing Exposure] Formula E will end its first season after the final race in London on June 27. At the same time, preparations for the new season have begun. Citroen, who did not join in the first season, recently conducted a secret test for the next season.
According to reports, the test was carried out at the beginning of this month, and the test items were mainly new gearbox systems (single gear or dual clutch gearboxes). In addition, although Formula E with CVT gearboxes is currently banned, some teams are trying to convince event organizers to lift the technology ban in the future.
Also participating in the test were some members of the Virgin Racing Team. At the same time, Sylvain Filippi, Technical Director of the Virgin Racing Team, confirmed that the company is considering putting two teams into the race next year. Therefore, it can be inferred that one of the teams may be jointly formed by Citroen and Virgin. More and more manufacturers will enter the Formula E event, which will not only promote the development of the event, but also make the game more exciting. (Compilation/Auto House Guo Feng)
