Kiwi driver Mitch Evans is looking forward to this weekend's Formula E Championship event in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The Panasonic Jaguar Racing factory driver will contest on the 12-turn, 2.5km Puerto Madero circuit for the first time despite it being the only event to feature on the calendar in each of the category's first three seasons.

"The circuit looks awesome," Evans said. "I've really enjoyed driving it on the simulator.

"Of course, most of the other drivers have some experience of the real track but we are as prepared as we can be.

"Adam [teammate Adam Carroll] has told me all about the awesome atmosphere. It promises to be an exciting weekend."

Evans has recently spent some time driving in winter conditions as part of some promotional work with Jaguar.

"It was incredible. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, especially for someone like me who grew up in a warm climate," he said.

"The driving experience was second to none. I won't disclose too much to spoil the show that will run on SuperCharged (CNN International) later in the season, but I managed to some pretty good drifts in the Jaguar F-TYPE out on the ice."
