Formula E’s Spark-Renault SRT_01E will make appearances at this weekend’s Pau Grand Prix, a single-seater racing festival held in southwestern France.
Two Spark-Renaults will be demonstrated to the public by Formula E regular Jerome D’Ambrosio and local racers Mike Parisy and Esteban Ocon over the course of the weekend.

Ocon, part of the Lotus F1 programme and reigning Formula 3 European champion, will be one of the youngest drivers to date to sample the all-electric single seater at the age of 18.
Paisy, on the other hand, is one of France’s most promising GT talents.
The demonstration laps come a week after Formula E’s first race on European soil, which saw Sebastien Buemi take his second win of the season.
The Pau Grand Prix, which has run since the 1930s, is a key event in hardcore Formula racing enthusiasts’ diaries and includes rounds of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship, Formula Renault 2.0 Alps and French F4 Championship.
