HWA AG is set to join the Formula E Championship as a new customer team for the 2018/19 season.
After working closely with the Venturi team throughout the current campaign as a provider of technical support, HWA AG will extend their existing partnership with the Monaco-based team to receive powertrains from next season.
The full entry list is set to be confirmed and published by the FIA shortly in advance of season five, with the expected introduction of the faster and more energy efficient next generation of Formula E cars.
“Formula E is a completely new motorsport discipline with extremely tough competition,” said Ulrich Fritz, CEO of HWA AG. “It’s a challenge that we’re very happy to rise to. HWA AG are the most successful team ever in DTM history. Our goal is to continue the company’s success story in Formula E.”
“Not only does Formula E have a new-look and unique visual identity for season five, with the futuristic next-generation car – but we also have exciting news with a new team entering the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in HWA AG,” added Formula E Founder and CEO Alejandro Agag. “It’s rewarding to see a name so synonymous with racing join the already impressive and growing list of teams and manufacturers competing in Formula E.”
