There’s normally a brief shakedown session the day before an E-Prix, along with two practice sessions on the day of the race. The first lasts 45 minutes and the second 30 minutes. In the qualifying, the drivers are divided into four groups. The drivers have 6 minutes to race their fastest lap in their groups. Their cars have an engine power of 250 kW (340 PS) available.
The top six proceed to the 20-minute Super Pole shoot-out. This session decides who will start from the first, second and third rows of the grid. The race lasts 45 minutes plus one lap. In race mode, drivers have 200 kW (272 PS) to play with. When there’s a double-header – two races over the course of the weekend – the programme on the second day is identical, other than with just one 45-minute practice session.
