Formula E Racing
Excitement on and off the track
Formula-E is a new FIA championship featuring Formula cars powered exclusively by electric energy. It represents a vision for the future of the motor industry over the coming decades, serving as a framework for research and development around the electric vehicle, accelerating general interest in these cars and promoting sustainability.
Environmental issues promoting sustainability
The Championship will compete in the heart of 10 of the world’s leading cities – including Hong Kong and Paris – racing around their iconic landmarks. For the inaugural season, 10 teams, each with two drivers, will go head-to-head creating a unique and exciting racing series designed to appeal to a new generation of motor-sport fan.
Energy that powers the vehicles
The Championship centers around three core values of Energy, Environment and Entertainment and is a fusion of engineering, technology, sport, science, design, music and entertainment – all combining to drive the change towards an electric future.
GEOX DRAGON was founded in 2006, by Owner and Team Principal Jay Penske. GEOX DRAGON is headquartered in California (Los Angeles), the largest EV market in the world, and has additional racing operations in Britain (Silverstone, UK). In 2014, GEOX DRAGON became one of the three founding teams of the FIA Formula-E Championship. The team finished Runner-Up (2nd place) in the Championship in 2015 and scored the first ever Formula E race wins in both Germany and Mexico in 2016 and 2017. GEOX DRAGON develops its powertrains under the Penske Autosport marque. The team’s engineering and mechanic personnel are some of the finest and most experienced engineers and crew in the world, collectively accumulating over 185 years of racing experience, and achieving over 220+ race wins and 17 Championship titles. GEOX DRAGON’s pilots for Season 5 include three-time World Touring Car Driver’s Champion and multiple FIA Formula E podium finisher José María López and former Formula 1 pilot and current reigning IMSA Champion Felipe Nasr, Formula 2 race winner, and GEOX DRAGON Test and Reserve Driver, Maximilian Günther, will also compete in a limited program in addition to his technical duties.
GEOX DRAGON’s team motto is the Latin phrase “E Pluribus Unum” – meaning “out of many, there is one.”
Using the very latest technology, the zero emission GEOX DRAGON Penske EV-3 stretches the boundaries of what is currently available in electric motorsport. Made from carbon fiber and aluminum, the chassis is both super lightweight and incredibly strong and fully complies with the latest FIA crash tests.
The Penske EV-3 electric powertrain (inverter, motor control unit, motor and transmission) is a bespoke system, designed and developed in house by GEOX DRAGON and our homologated manufacturer, Penske Autosport. McLaren Advanced Technology supplies the battery which produces 250kW, the equivalent of 335 hp.
All systems integration is done in-house at Penske Autosport and is a key area of development for both road and racing electric vehicles.
McLaren Advanced Technologies, supplies the batteries for the Penske EV-3, with a capcity of 54kWh and the ability to deploy 250kW (335hp) while completing the race on a single charge.
Powertrain & Electronics
GEOX DRAGON designs and develops all powertrain and energy management electronics for the Penske EV-3 with the support of Penske Autosport. These electronics manage the complex processes of deploying electric power under acceleration and regenerating energy (to recharge) under deceleration.
While each team uses the same specified chassis for the ABB FIA Formula E Championship; GEOX DRAGON has developed and implemented our own design for the electric powertrain through the team at Penske Autosport.
Monocoque chassis designed and constructed by Spark. Made from carbon fibre and aluminium, the chassis is both super lightweight and incredibly strong and fully complies with the latest FIA crash tests.
All cars are fitted with special Michelin 18” treaded tires, designed to give durability and consistent performance in both dry and wet conditions. Drivers receive one new set for each race.
