Monaco GP race winner launches self-run outfit after taking over Drayson Racing team slot; Italian to drive full-time in FIA Formula E Championship.
Formula One race winner Jarno Trulli today announced he is to form and manage a new team for the FIA Formula E Championship – entitled TrulliGP Formula E Team – with which he will race in the unique all-electric series. The 39-year-old Italian has taken over the entry of Drayson Racing.
Following approval from the FIA, TrulliGP has been granted the 10th team entry for the Formula E Championship, following the withdrawal of Drayson Racing. Drayson Technologies will be entering into a supply and sponsorship arrangement with TrulliGP to be the squad’s principal technology partner. As part of this, TrulliGP will begin work on Drayson’s wireless charging technology – which offers the potential to free electric vehicles from the constraints of cable-based charging.
