The Circuit Ricardo Tormo is a familiar site to us here at ROKiT Venturi Racing and this weekend, the Spanish venue will make history as Formula E’s seventh season continues.
As the long-term home of pre-season testing, we have been visiting Valencia since Season 4 and it has been the site of extensive car development for Monaco’s only racing team.
Since 2017, we have developed four cars on the circuit, lapping it a total of 1,138 times – the equivalent of driving 3,861.464-kilometres.
This is the same as driving from our base in Monaco to the circuit three times over, whilst the distance nearly matches our total in-season running mileage from the 2019/20 campaign.
Despite this, however, a special configuration for this weekend’s race means that our data doesn’t perfectly align, with a change to Sector 3 altering the circuit we have grown used to.
Featuring 15 corners, this weekend’s Formula E layout of the Circuit Ricardo Tormo is 3.376-kilometres long – 0.009-kilometres shorter than Rome but 0.238-kilometres longer than the pre-season testing configuration.
Although Spain is one of the largest hybrid electric vehicle markets in Europe, its main source of air pollution remains road traffic which contributes to 90% of the emissions of atmospheric pollutants.
This is where we come in, hand in hand with Formula E as we continue to promote the adoption of electric vehicles in the series’ first season as an FIA World Championship.
With the help of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, we will continue to advance the performance of electric vehicles in the world’s premier all-electric racing series.
Every time we take to the circuit, HPE provides us with real-time solutions, allowing us to have a continual competitive advantage over our rivals with the capability of high-speed data distribution and analysis.
This allows us to make the split-second decisions that count when the time comes, separating the difference between victory and defeat in the world’s only carbon-neutral racing championship.
