British motorsport and engineering firm Prodrive would like to race in Formula E, according to leading motorsport journal Autosport. New company boss John Gaw confirmed that the new sport is on his radar. The outfit builds and races cars in other series for well-known brands such as Aston Martin and Ford, and could become a technical partner to one of the first season Formula E racing teams.
“I would like to see us running cars in the new Formula E Championship, which I believe has a tremendous future,” Gaw said.
Prodrive founder David Richards has been a key supporter of the Formula E series for all-electric vehicles, which is due to kick off next September. The Formula E entry is full, but a number of teams have yet to announce technical partners for their programmes.
