Event: Mike Bushell BBC Breakfast test drive
Series: FIA Formula E
Location: Donington Park, UK
Date: 06 September 2016
There were some nervous faces in the DS Virgin Racing garage when they handed Sam Bird’s race-ready Formula E car over to BBC Breakfast presenter Mike Bushell for a test drive around Donington Park. Formula E usually has a show car on hand for these types of press event but Mike was entrusted with one of the two cars Sam Bird will be racing around the streets of Hong Kong in. After a quick tutorial on how the advanced racing car works, the presenter slid into the car and headed out on track. The results will be seen on BBC Breakfast soon.
