|ROKiT Venturi Racing is delighted to extend its relationship with Hewlett Packard Enterprise [HPE] on the eve of pre-season testing for Season 8 of the FIA Formula E World Championship.|
ROKiT Venturi Racing and HPE first joined forces in 2018 in the build up to Season 5 shortly after Team Principal Susie Wolff took to the helm. The continuation of the partnership builds upon three seasons of innovation together as the team prepares to contest the 2021/22 campaign.
Since teaming up at the start of Formula E’s current Gen2 era, ROKiT Venturi Racing and HPE have worked in close collaboration to develop and implement next generation technologies in the world’s premier fully-electric racing series.
With HPE’s assistance, the team has revolutionised the speed of its distribution, analysis and dissemination of data to become a more efficient and competitive operation, gaining a real-time advantage through insight-fueled, data-driven decision making.
This has translated into ROKiT Venturi Racing producing some of its greatest performances in Formula E to date, with two victories, eight podiums and one vice-World Championship title in Season 7.
|A Step for the Future|
Focusing firmly on the future, ROKiT Venturi Racing holds higher ambitions and aspirations in which HPE will play a fundamental role.
In Season 8, the team will continue to evolve its partnership with HPE deploying cutting-edge technologies that are at the forefront of innovation to refine performance. HPE’s striking branding will also continue to feature prominently in the team’s identity.
