Ds Virgin Move to Three Speed gearbox

As the start of the third season of the Formula E Championship gets closer, Ds Virgin Racing has revealed the final piece of their powertrain puzzle by releasing that their powertrain consists of three gears. 

Ds Virgin Racing announced that they would move away from the dual motor system and the single gear option that they had in season two. Now, the team will use a single motor in season three with three gears.

DS Virgin Racing Team Principal Alex Tai is hopeful that their redesigned package for season three will allow them to keep fighting for podiums despite the field becoming more competitive this season.

“The drivers, engineers and our manufacturing partners at DS performance have been working exceptionally hard over the summer to optimise the new car’s systems and performance.

“I believe we have produced a highly competitive racing package and I want to thank the entire team for their commitment to our preparation for the season. There is no place to hide on the track, and I eagerly await to see how our efforts will compare,” said Tai.

The first race of season three will get underway this weekend in Hong Kong, and we will finally know how the grid stacks up and who’s design’s are working the best.
