Dragon Racing, the Los Angeles-based motorsports team, owned by media and publishing entrepreneur Jay Penske, announced Mike Conway as a driver in the inaugural all-electric FIA Formula E Championship.

Mike Conway is an experienced street racer and multi-race winner in the IndyCar Series, and in 2014 is also driving with TOYOTA for their LMP1 WEC programme. Conway’s previous experience includes three seasons in GP2, and as a Formula 1 test driver for Honda Racing F1 Team.

Jay Penske, Owner of Dragon Racing said: “I have always been impressed by his talents, smarts, and performance in the IndyCar Series, and we feel that the combination of his experience, tenacity, and driving skills will be a force this year in the FIA Formula E Championship.”

“It is with great pleasure and excitement that I will be at the wheel of the Dragon Racing entry in the inaugural season of the FIA Formula E Championship,” said Mike Conway. “I have been very interested in Formula E since it was announced and I am proud to be involved with both Jay and Dragon Racing, in what I believe is breaking new ground in motorsports.  I am very confident we can achieve great results during this first season.”
