TrulliGP is a team change from the originally planned Drayson Racing, fronted by Lord Paul Drayson. Drayson Racing have stepped down from the title and instead will act as a support provider with the team working on adopting Drayson’s wireless charging technology during the course of the year, ready for season two where it is touted to play a major role.
TrulliGP is of course the brainchild of Jarno Trulli, a Formula One legend who competed in 256 Grand Prix, placing him in third place for the all-time entry list.
Since his retirement from the sport, he has developed into a business entrepreneur, with real estate and fine wine taking precedence.
Trulli was the first driver to test out the new Spark-Renault SRT_01E post developmental stage, where Lucas di Grassi did the hard work. He was initially unimpressed but only due to setup changes which were carried out straight away and after that, the rest is history. The man was hooked on electric sport and decided to not only start his own team, but also to act as driver too.
TrulliGP have since made further announcements to the team, including signing the second female driver to the sport, Michela Cerruti – another Italian race driver.
The team have also signed Michela’s current team, Super Nova, with whom she races in the Auto GP series, to run the TrulliGP Formula E team.
