Dillmann to test Formula E car with Team Aguri next week


Formula Renault 3.5 driver Tom Dillmann will get his first taste of a Formula E car at Donington Park next week in a test with Team Aguri.

Dillmann, 26, won the German Formula 3 title back in 2010 and has since raced in GP2, GP3 and Formula Renault 3.5.

The French driver currently sits sixth in the Formula Renault 3.5 standings with one podium finish to his name, but will sample a Formula E car for the first time next week.

Team Aguri confirmed via its Twitter account that Dillmann would be joining the team for the test at Donington Park in England, taking place on Monday and Tuesday next week.

Team Aguri is yet to confirm its line-up for the second Formula E season, but will enter the new campaign in a very different position to the one that it finished season one in.

The team has lost its title sponsor, Amlin, to Andretti, and is poised to use the season one powertrain supplied by Formula E while the other nine teams use a new one.

Dillmann is set to be joined at Team Aguri by season one driver Salvador Duran for the two day test at Donington Park.
