The latest news from Formula E, is that the newly formed TrulliGP who recently took over from Drayson Racing, will be run by successful single-seat race car squad, Norfolk based Super Nova.
Super Nova is no stranger to motorsport, having won Formula 3000 series four times in 1995, 1997, 1998 and 2002. After Formula 3000, the team won in 2006/7 in the A1GP series. More recently, they won the Auto GP drivers’ title in both 2012 and 2013. Several of those title wins were achieved with notable Formula One drivers including, Juan Pablo Montoya (’98), Sebastien Bourdais (’02), Nico Hulkenberg (2006/7) and Mark Webber (second place finish in 2006/7 & 2007/8).
The Super Nova signing will likely stand the newest driver in the Formula E paddock, Michela Cerruti, in good stead since she currently races in Auto GP for Super Nova in a BMW Z4 GT3. As such will be very familiar with the way in which Super Nova operate. Michela is currently in sixth position in the driver standings, with team mate Markus Pommer in second position, making Super Nova International the top of the team rankings (correct as of 29 June 2014).
One thing is sure about Formula E, as per Alejandro Agag and Michael Fallon’s words at the Global Launch Event just two days ago on Monday 30th June, the sport is already taking full advantage of the well established motorsport expertise available in the UK.
