ABT Sportsline is the seventh team to join Formula E. Drayson Racing, China Racing, Andretti Autosport, Dragon Racing, e.dams and Super Aguri have announced their participation earlier this year.
“We’re proud to have the opportunity to take part in the debut of this new racing series. Participating in the new FIA Formula E Championship marks a completely new chapter in our more than 60-year motorsport history,” said ABT managing director Hans-Jürgen Abt. “As a company that has been active in the field of regenerative powertrains and electric mobility we’re convinced of the series’ concept. It’s innovative, delivers motorsport at the highest level and a great show for fans around the world – all of which are a perfect fit for ABT Sportsline.”
