Development of the new BMW iFE.18 continued this week with a test at the Calafat circuit in Catalunya, Spain.

The single seater was equipped with a drivetrain developed solely by BMW to compete in Season 5 of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship when BMW joins the first series for fully-electric racing cars as an official manufacturer.

DTM driver, Canadian Bruno Spengler drove the BMW iFE.18 on the 3.250-kilometre road course, which is located on the Mediterranean coast. Spengler, the 2012 DTM champion, completed a comprehensive testing programme, but no official times were issued.

“The test with the BMW iFE.18 was a very positive one,” said Spengler, who did not reveal much about the test for obvious reasons.

“We spent a lot of time on track. When we did come across any issues, they were solved relatively quickly. In a project as new as this one, the initial tests are primarily about gaining experience. We did that and completed the majority of our test programme. For me, as a driver, it is very special to be involved here from the word go. Working on the development of a new car is a unique task,” ended the Montebello, Québec native.
