The Mouser-sponsored all electric racing team takes to the 2.093 km Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez track at the Mexico City E-prix on February 16.
“Formula E cars require the latest sustainable and — most importantly — high-performance components to gain a competitive edge,” said Todd McAtee, Vice President, Americas Business Development for Mouser Electronics. “By teaming up with TTI, Molex and AVX to sponsor Formula E, Mouser shows its commitment to keeping engineers up to date with innovative technologies.”
Team drivers for Season 5 include three-time World Touring Car Driver’s Champion and multiple FIA Formula E podium finisher José María “Pechito” López, along with Formula 2 race winner and former DRAGON Test and Reserve driver, Maximilian Günther. The team is also in discussions to bring on former Formula 1 pilot and reigning IMSA Champion, Felipe Nasr.
“TTI is proud to again partner with Mouser to support this exciting sport and what it means to sustainable automotive technologies of the future,” said Mike Morton, TTI Chief Operating Officer.
“We are all looking forward to this season of Formula E. The Gen2 car is a huge step forward in electric racing technology, and it will be exciting to see how it evolves the already popular sport,” said Fred Bell, Vice President of Global Distribution for Molex. “As proud supporters since the inception of Formula E, Mouser and Molex wish the GEOX DRAGON team a very safe and successful season on the road.”
“At AVX, we are thrilled to be partner with Mouser, Molex, and TTI to support this incredible racing technology,” said Eric Pratt, AVX’s Senior Vice President of Marketing.
To further support the GEOX DRAGON drivers, fans are encouraged vote for their favorite driver in FANBOOST, which allows fans to play an active role in influencing the outcome of the race. FANBOOST gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite driver and award them an extra boost of power during the race. The five drivers with the most FANBOOST votes are awarded a significant burst of power, which they can deploy in a 5-second window during the second half of the race. FANBOOST voting for the Mexico City E-Prix opens February 11 and is available all the way up to 15 minutes into the race.
The series heads to Hong Kong next on March 10, followed by Sanya, China, on March 23.
