F3 driver Tveter gets surprise Formula E test

European Formula 3 racer Ryan Tveter will test a Formula E car at Donington Park next week, Motorsport.com can reveal.

The American, who races a Carlin-run Dallara in F3 and sits 21st in the standings with a sole points finish at Zandvoort to his name, will drive one of the official Formula E test cars at the Leicestershire circuit.

Tveter’s father is Eric Tveter, boss of Telecommunications giant Cablecom, which in turn is owned by Formula E investor Liberty Global.

Liberty Global and Discovery Communications, which are owned by media mogul John Malone, are jointly believed to own one-third shares in Formula E.

Tveter, who is based in Switzerland, will undertake a seat fitting this week before sampling the all-electric Spark-Renault on Monday.

Motorsport.com understands that the 21-year-old could also be utilised in future demonstration runs in a Formula E car.
