DS Virgin Racing prepares for Paris

Fresh off the back of the Monaco ePrix last week, the DS Virgin Racing team is in Paris for the first ever back to back race weekend in Formula E history.

The team has regrouped since Monaco and is now fully focused on the Paris ePrix, which will see the drivers take on 49 laps of the 14 turn, 1.93km circuit around Les Invalides.


Paris is a home race for DS and last year’s race saw good results for the team with a pole position start and podium finish so they’ll definitely be looking to repeat that success this year.

In preparation for the race, the drivers took their cars for a spin down the Champs-Élysées and around the Place de la Concorde in the city this week.
