NextEV TCR’s Oliver Turvey will take part in the next round of the Formula E Championship in Berlin on the 21st May. The British driver was due to miss the German round due to a clash with the Super GT Championship; a Championship that Turvey has raced in since April 2015. However, due to the devastating earthquakes that have affected the Japanese island of Kyushu island, the Autopolis round of the Championship has been postponed, enabling Turvey to race in Berlin.
Earlier the team announced that Ben Hanley would take Turvey’s place.
“First of all, my thoughts go out to everyone affected by the earthquakes that have hit Kyushu”, said Turvey. “It’s understandable that the organisers have had to postpone the Super GT race at Autopolis, but I hope we can race there later in the year for all the fans in the Kyushu region. It now means that I am available to race in the next round of the Formula E Championship. I’m looking forward to racing on this new track and will be pushing for a strong points finish.”
