Formula e – Oliver Turvey with NEXTEV China Racing

The starting grid for the next season of the Formula e continues to fill up. The stable NEXTEV China Racing today confirmed the presence of the British Oliver Turney, 28 years old, alongside the Brazilian Nelson Piquet Jr., reigning champion of the discipline.

The training of Team Principal Steven Lu had already been able to improve the British vice-champion F3 2008 during the final in London last June. After two top 10 finishes, Turvey convinced his employers to keep him for the coming season.

“I’m happy that my performance was able to allow me to join them and compete for the full season. I look forward to working with the whole team on the development of their new powertrain and am excited to drive alongside the current champion.

I want to thank McLaren and Honda for their continued support, and allowing me to compete in Formula E in addition to my duties as a test driver in F1 and my commitments in Super GT. » The second season of Formula e will finally begin on October 24, after the requested postponement by the event organizers.
