René Rast, the fifth rider of the Team Aguri in Formula E


The Team Aguri goes through difficult times. Immersed in a
sales process and with its founder Aguri Suzuki away from the project, the
training japanese -now british – are having a difficult end of
season in Formula E. To these problems we must add the absence of
António Félix Da Costa due to his commitments in the DTM in the next ePrix
Berlin, forcing the team to resort to a fifth pilot, in violation
the regulations of the Formula E, which indicates that there can only be four drivers per
team and season. Be that as it may, René Rast will be competing with Team Aguri in the ePrix of Berlin

In this way, René Rast and Ma Qing Hua will be the two pilots
the team in Berlin
, the penultimate city to visit the Formula E this season.
While the chinese driver will play their second ePrix after making his debut in Paris,
René Rast set to compete for the first time with a single-seater electric
, though that’s not
must be a problem for a pilot who has experience in the Daytona, and a
extensive trajectory in the World of Endurance and the 24 Hours of Le Mans,
this year to compete with a LMP2. Even so, the first choice of the team was
Adam Carroll
, with experience in Formula E.

Whatever the case may be, René Rast was excited with this
opportunity to compete in the Formula E: “, piloting a single-seater
Formula E on the streets of Berlin will be something very special and I would like to
thanks to the team for this great opportunity. I’ve been on the simulator in the
last few days to get a good feeling with the car. I’m sure
I can get to work quickly
and to use my experience in the management of
the energy to deliver a good result for the team. I would Also like to
thank you to Audi Sport for allowing me to compete here”
