19 April 2021, Banbury, UK – Just two weeks after a fantastic return to the podium for Mahindra Racing, the team will be back in action for rounds five and six of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship as the series moves to Valencia, Spain.
In a departure from the usual city street locations, the races in Valencia will see the competition take place on a 3.376km, 15-turn modified version of the Circuit Ricardo Tormo. The circuit has been the official pre-season test location for several seasons, but the event this month will see it used a race venue for the first time in Formula E.
Alexander Sims, who finished last time out in Rome on the podium in second, will drive the #29 ‘Simsulator’ while Alex Lynn, who topped the timesheets on the second day of testing at the Valencia track in November, will be at the wheel of the #94 ‘Shakti’ M7 Electro.
Round 5 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will take place on Saturday 24 April at 3pm local time, with Round 6 beginning at the earlier time of 2pm on Sunday 25 April.
