Nick Cassidy has topped the Formula E rookie’s test from Marrakesh, obliterating the lap record in the process.
Testing for the Envision Virgin outfit, Cassidy set a 1m 16.467s in the afternoon session in what was the first-ever sub-1m17s lap of the circuit.
Cassidy’s fastest time eclipsed the previous lap record held by current Dragon Formula E driver Nico Muller in the 2018 rookie’s test.
The kiwi finished the day almost half a second clear of his nearest rival – Sergio Sette Camara.
In the overall timings, it was Venturi that completed the most laps, with 184 tours of the Marrakesh E-Prix circuit with the aid of Arthur Leclerc, younger brother of Scuderia Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc.
Filipe Albuquerque – who has not competed in single-seaters since the 2008-9 A1 GP season for Team Portugal – was third in Jean-Eric Vergne’s DS Techeetah.
Kelvin van der Linde had been quickest in the day’s morning session but ultimately settled for ninth quickest come the chequered flag.
