Tom Blomqvist scored points in both races of the Rome E-Prix two weeks ago, and the NIO 333 FE Team driver will come to the Valencia E-Prix with confidence.

After failing to score points in either of the Diriyah E-Prix races back in February, Blomqvist was able to claim his first point of the season in race one in Rome, and he followed that up by finishing eighth in race two to score four more points.

Blomqvist feels the new layout of the Valencia circuit will provide exciting racing this weekend, with the Briton praising series officials for it.  He also hopes that NIO can continue their scoring run in the 2020-21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, with Oliver Turvey having scored points in both Diriyah races and Blomqvist in both Rome races.

“I think Formula E has done a great job creating this new circuit,” said Blomqvist. “I am sure the track layout will provide exciting racing – it’s a less typical Formula E circuit, but nevertheless it’s going to have its own challenges.

“We want to keep at least one NIO 333 FE car in the points in every race, which has been super positive for the team so far, and we aim to continue that run of form heading into Valencia.

“It’s not going to be easy as there hasn’t been much time between events so it’s a really challenging time now with the upcoming races, but we’ll be pushing hard for some more point finishes.”

Despite his points scoring antics in Rome, Blomqvist will be in Group 4 in Qualifying in Valencia for race one.
