Dragon Racing has been announced as the fourth team to contest the inaugural Formula E championship. The LA-based IndyCar team is no stranger to motorsports: it fields F1 champion Sebastian Vettel’s former Torro Rosso team mate Sebastien Bourdais in its line-up and was previously associated with multiple championship winner Gil de Ferran.
Dragon is the second US team to sign up to the series and the second from IndyCar. That matches the two US races scheduled for the first season, one of which will be especially close to home for Dragon, in LA.
“It’s an honour for Dragon Racing to have been selected as one of the founding teams,” said Jay Penske, Dragon Racing owner. “Formula E symbolizes a vision for the future of motorsports and the automotive industry, while directly appealing to a new generation of global race fans.”
