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.

Our Team

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 Formula 2 race winner and former GEOX DRAGON Test and Reserve Driver, Maximilian Günther.

Systems Integration

All systems integration is done in-house at Dragon Racing and is a key area of development for both road and racing electric vehicles.

Battery Design

Williams Advanced Engineering, part of the Williams group of companies that includes the world famous Williams F1 team, supplies the batteries for the Penske EV-2, providing 200kW, the equivalent of 270bhp.

Powertrain & Electronics

GEOX DRAGON designs and develops all powertrain and energy management electronics for the Penske EV-2. These electronics manage the complex processes of deploying electric power under acceleration and regenerating energy (to recharge) under deceleration.

Car Construction

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.

Chassis

Monocoque chassis designed and constructed by leading Italian firm Dallara. Made from carbon fibre and aluminium, the chassis is both super lightweight and incredibly strong and fully complies with the latest FIA crash tests.

Tires

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 two sets for each race.
