BMW DTM drivers Joel Eriksson (SWE) and Bruno Spengler (CAN) are set for a first this coming weekend: both drivers will attend the Formula E rookie test in Marrakech. One day after the third race of the season, the two drivers will have the opportunity to take to the track in a Formula E car for the first time.

Spengler will test for the MS&AD Andretti Formula E team, while Eriksson will be in action for the DS Virgin Racing team.

“A lot of talented drivers compete in Formula E. It is great to experience this at first hand, and to get a first impression of electric motor racing. I am looking forward to getting behind the wheel,” said Eriksson.

Andretti Steinbrenner Racing IndyLights driver Colton Herta (USA) will also take part in the test in Marrakech alongside Spengler for MS&AD Andretti Formula E.
