NextEV TCR Formula And repeats it with Piquet Jr. and Turvey


In the absence of knowing the two Jaguar drivers, the grill of the ‘Season Three’ of the Formula E is complete. The last team to announce its line-up of riders has been NextEV TCR, training that will have Nelson Piquet Jr. and Oliver Turvey as their pilots, thus repeating in relation to the season 2015-16. A bet of continuity which endorses the good work done by both pilots and that in a certain way points to the team as the responsible of the ill-fated last season in which the first champion of the Formula E and the british pilot were only 19 points.

Nelson Piquet Jr. played his third season with the team with license china, being one of the few riders that has remained faithful to the same computer from which you started the Formula E. After proclaiming himself champion in the inaugural season of the competition, Piquet had a ‘Season Two’ really complicated in that only reached the points in the appointments of Punta del Este and in London. One of the spoils too small for a pilot who had added two victories and three podiums in the previous year. For this reason, NextEV was also part of the test carried out in Calafat.

Oliver Turvey came to the team in the last race of the ‘Season One’ and after scoring in both races of the ePrix of London, settled in the team. The british improved the results of Piquet during the season 2015-16 to get score points in Beijing, Buenos Aires and London, adding also in the best position of the team after finishing sixth in the appointment to china. Be that as it may, Turvey, faces his second full season with the hope of being able to fight for greater goals on a computer that also has confirmed to Gerry Hughes as Chief Engineer Race and the signings of Paul Flickers (Fiat) and Barry Mortimer (Aguri) for the technical staff.
