“Motorsport is our passion,...”
“Motorsport is our passion,” said CEO Joan Orus. “It provides the ‘halo effect’ for everything we are creating in the factory and gives the company an exciting, vibrant environment for all our technicians.
“I was involved in Formula E from the outset and I have been saying to Alejandro Agag and others within Formula E and Extreme E that we need a junior category for drivers entering the electric journey. I am delighted that we are involved in Formula G and that it creates two categories for drivers to specialise in this field.
“Formula One has Formula Two and Formula Three which is the proving ground for drivers graduating into the top echelon. To be successful in Formula One you need to be quick and have the fastest car. In electric motorsport you need to have a number of more complex skills as well; you need to be able to understand how to conserve energy and use the power intelligently. These are skills which can be learned in the Formula G series.”
“Similarly, the collaboration will give us an opportunity to provide opportunities for young engineers and mechanics in the early stages of their career to learn the skills around electric motorsport.”
Formula G and QEV Tech have an equal passion for the future of mobility and for the education and nurturing of drivers and technicians within this field. The targets are shared over the two organisations and the ambition is to create an academy to train drivers and engineers and technicians in the electric motorsport field.
“Of course, we are delighted to be working with QEV Tech,” said Dilbagh Gill, Founder and Chief Executive Officer – Formula G.
“We share the same aims and goals and we have worked together in Formula E and other projects. QEV Tech is the perfect partner for this championship. I have every confidence in QEV Technologies to deliver two fantastic cars for our two categories."
