Lucien said of the event: “I’m a big fan of motorsport and everything related to cars. Seeing the new GEN3 race car on track for the first time was insane. It looks like a fighter jet on wheels and sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie.
He added: “Formula E is a world leader in electric car innovation. I’m in line for an electric vehicle and that really whetted my appetite.”
As well as enjoying the incredible on-track action, Lucien will also enjoy electric performances from world-renowned artists such as John Legend, French Montana, who will be performing post-race concerts over the weekend.

The Burnley-born actor caught the attention of the franchise’s bosses with his role in Emily in Paris.
Lucien, who got his first role as a child model for Marks & Spencer when he was 10, is also considered the perfect age to play Bond.
According to the Mail On Sunday, Broccoli has made it clear she would like the next actor to portray the character for 15 years, ruling out former favorite Idris Elba, who turned 50 in September.

It is also believed that Broccoli and her team are keen to have an ethnic minority star play 007 in order for the franchise to reflect modern society.
But some executives fear Laviscount’s appearance on Celebrity Big Brother when he finished fifth will hurt his chances of getting the job, as previous bonds have been more demanding.
A source said: “Lucien ticks all the boxes. He is a super talented actor, extremely good looking and has gained a lot of new fans in the last 18 months since he joined Emily In Paris.

“Bond bosses are already saying how you can see him in the 007 tuxedo, how dapper and fit for the role he’ll look.
“But there’s a sticking point, and that’s Big Brother. Lucien appeared on the show at a time when his acting career wasn’t as high profile as it is today, but he was hugely popular then and now has a fan base that spans generations. This is a dream come true for Barbara who is very taken with him.”
