Turvey to drive for NEXTEV TCR
The FIA Formula E team NEXTEV TCR has confirmed Oliver Turvey as their driver for the second season of the series.
Turvey debuted in Formula E during the last weekend of the inaugural season at London ePrix, taking points in both races. That was enough for the Chinese team’s representatives to offer him a contract for 2015/2016 campaign. Now, Turvey will drive alongside reigning champion Nelson Piquet Jr.
“I am delighted to be joining NEXTEV TCR for the second season of Formula E. The team gave me fantastic opportunity when they approached me to race in the season finale in London, and I am happy that my performance has led to me being able to re-join them and compete for the full season. I would like to thank McLaren and Honda for their continued support, and for allowing me to compete in Formula E alongside my F1 testing duties and racing commitments in Super GT,” said Turvey who has solid single-seaters experience driving in British F3, Formula Renault 3.5 and GP2 Asia.
