The FIA has revealed the names of the 10 teams which have been validated to enter the registration process for the second season of the all-electric FIA Formula E Championship.
As announced, Virgin Racing will now become DS Virgin Racing following its partnership with DS Automobiles. Audi Sport ABT will be renamed to ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport team after the technology partner stepped in. Team Aguri seems to lose its title sponsor Amlin and perhaps, as rumoured, the insurance company might partner another team. The teams’ registration will be officially verified after July 24, 2015.
Alejandro Agag, CEO of Formula E, commented: “After our successful inaugural season, it’s very positive for the championship to have 10 teams registering for season two, several of which have backing from leading manufacturers. This clearly shows the strength of the series and we’re already looking forward to getting preparations for next season underway.”
