Virgin began life as a music records business but it’s founder, Sir Richard Branson soon set his sights higher and it became the international mega-brand that it is today.
Since those humble beginnings, Virgin have put their hand to many different and new technologies. Many in the UK know them for their phone and broadband services, whereas other’s know them for their airline service.
More recently, Virgin are one of the only companies in the world to be attempting to offer paying customers trips into space, via their incredible Virgin Galactic.
Team principle Alex Tai has been directly involved with many of Virgin’s exploits and brings to Formula E a wealth of experience in pushing the boundaries of what we know as being possible.
Virgin have signed both their drivers already, the Spaniard and ex-F1 driver Jaime Alguersuari and the British driver, Sam Bird.
