Mike Conway will replace Loic Duval at Dragon Racing for the Paris Formula E race next month. Duval misses the event due to a clash with the DTM championship in Lausitz.
Toyota World Endurance Championship racer Conway raced for Venturi last season scoring seven points throughout the season.
Conway originally signed for Dragon Racing prior to the inaugural season. He conducted testing duties for the team at Donington Park. However, he left the team shortly before the first race in Beijing.
“I’m honoured to be given the opportunity to compete with Faraday Future Dragon Racing,” said Conway. “The team has showcased fervour and technical prowess this season, and I’m confident of the positive results we can achieve together in Paris.”
Jay Penske, team owner and Team Principal of Dragon Racing is looking forward to working with Conway and hopes the Brit can put on a strong showing in Paris.
“We are thrilled to have Mike Conway join us next month for the Paris ePrix,” said Penske.”He’s an experienced driver whom I have always respected. I believe he has the talent and tenacity will contribute to the team’s overall performance in Paris.”
Loic Duval will return for the Berlin ePrix on June 10th and 11th.
