Turvey completes Team China Racing line-up

1 Mins read

British driver Oliver Turvey will make his full-time debut in the FIA Formula E championship in season two after signing with Team China Racing.

The team gave the McLaren Formula 1 test driver his Formula E debut at Battersea Park at the end of the inaugural season, and Turvey will now partner reigning champion Nelson Piquet Jr for the 2015/16 season.

Twenty-eight-year-old Turvey secured points in both races at Battersea Park, and is looking forward to getting started this season next month in Beijing.

“The level of competition and drivers is a strong attraction but also the technical side,” said Turvey to Autosport. “New technology is something quite exciting and you learn a lot driving different cars.

“Working in a championship where there’s development of the car is something I enjoy and is one of my strengths from my engineering background and working with McLaren.

“Having Nelson alongside me will be a great benchmark and be good for me as a driver.”
