Antonio Garcia to Race for NEXTEV TCR in Moscow


Antonio Garcia will return to Formula E for the first time since the Punta del Este ePrix. He will race for the NEXTEV TCR team.

Garcia raced for the team earlier in the season where he scored an eleventh place. He has also tested for the team pre-season when they were known as China Racing Formula E, where he managed a best of sixth.

The Spanish racer is usually a GT driver and a works Corvette driver in the Tudor United Sportscar Championship, where he has won the first two rounds in the GT Le Mans Category. Garcia is also known for having won the 24 Hours of Le Mans twice.

He will replace Charles Pic as the team attempt to push for a higher position in the championship. The team currently lie fourth in the constructors championship, 9 points behind second place Dragon Racing.

Pic has struggled to get use to the car as well as team mate Nelson Piquet Jr. The Frenchman has only scored 4 points, thanks to an eighth place at Monaco. While his Brazilian team mate leads the championship with one win and three further podiums.

The Moscow ePrix will take place on the 6th June.
