Formula E car to star in Tokyo


The Formula E car will run in Japan for the first time ever this weekend.

Sometime Team Aguri racer Sakon Yamamoto will wow the crowds in the Roppongi Hills area of the Japanese capital when he takes the Formula E test car for a ride on Sunday, August 23.

The run is scheduled to take place at 3pm local time and will last for around 15 minutes. Along with ex-Formula 1 racer Yamamoto, the test will also be attended by Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag, Team Aguri founder Aguri Suzuki and Team Aguri team principal Mark Preston.

Yamamoto previously drove the Formula E test car at the Miami-Homestead track ahead of the Miami ePrix early this year. He also competed in both races of the season one finale at Battersea in June.
