Dragon Racing, the Los Angeles-based motorsports team, owned by media and publishing entrepreneur Jay Penske, announced Mike Conway as a driver in the inaugural all-electric FIA Formula E Championship.
Mike Conway is an experienced street racer and multi-race winner in the IndyCar Series, and in 2014 is also driving with TOYOTA for their LMP1 WEC program. Conway’s previous experience includes three seasons in GP2, and as a Formula 1 test driver for Honda Racing F1 Team.
In a related news, Amlin Aguri has said that Portuguese driver Antonio Felix da Costa will join the team for its inaugural FIA Formula E Championship season.
Felix da Costa will participate in today’s first public test for the squad before linking up on Friday with the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula 1 Team where he will continue as the team’s reserve driver at the British Grand Prix this weekend.
The 22-year-old is no stranger to the Spark-Renault SRT_01E Formula E car having driven for the outfit during a shakedown held in early June at the Donington Park Racing Circuit.
He now becomes the second driver to join Amlin Aguri, following the arrival of Katherine Legge, in the all-electric series which starts in Beijing on September 13 and races around the iconic ‘Bird’s Nest’ Olympic stadium.[wzslider height=”400″ lightbox=”true”]
