Tokyo Formula E demo details revealed

More details have been announced about the Formula E demo run on the streets of Tokyo on Sunday.

As revealed by Motorsport.com earlier this month, former F1 driver Sakon Yamamoto will be driving the Spark-Renault Formula E car in the Roppongi Hills area of Tokyo on Sunday afternoon.

This exclusive shopping district includes the Mori Tower, a 54-story business centre, which is one of the main features of the Tokyo skyline. The Mori tower also houses the offices of TV Asahi, the Japanese media giant which has a long-term broadcasting deal with Formula E.

Motorsport.com understands the Roppongi Hills district of Tokyo is believed to be the favourite to form a street circuit for a potential season three Tokyo ePrix.

Formula E boss Alejandro Agag will attend the demonstration on Sunday, along with Formula E team owner Aguri Suzuki and his team principal, Mark Preston.

Several key decision makers, from a host of Japanese manufacturers, are known to be attending the demonstration, as momentum gathers for at least two Japanese manufacturers to get involved in the growing series.

In addition to Yamamoto, Motorsport.com can also reveal that Japanese drifting legend and former Toyota Le Mans driver Keiichi Tsuchiya will also drive on Sunday.
