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

DRAGON is an American racing team founded in 2007 by Jay Penske. After many successful years competing in IndyCar, DRAGON became one of the founding teams of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. The team is headquartered in Los Angeles, California – the largest single metropolitan EV (electric vehicle) market in the world – with additional operations in the U.K. at the Donington Park racing circuit. DRAGON is one of the leading teams in the series, with the Penske-led team finishing 2nd (runner-up) in the inaugural 2014/2015 Formula E season, and 4th in the second 2015/2016 ABB Formula E championship. DRAGON has one of the most experienced teams in the paddock. Collectively, the team has over 180 years of racing experience, with over 275 race wins, 24 Indy 500 victories, and 17 series championships. Single-seater ace, Jerome Dambrosio, and multiple WTCC Drivers’ Champion, Jose “Pechito” Maria Lopez will contest the ABB FIA Formula E season 4 championship, with the support of Max Maximilian “Max” Günther as test and reserve driver.
DRAGON’s team motto is the Latin phrase “E Pluribus Unum” – meaning “out of many, there is one.”

Our Car

Using the very latest technology, the zero emission DRAGON Penske EV-2 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-2 electric powertrain (inverter, motor control unit, motor and transmission) is a bespoke system, designed and developed in house by DRAGON. Williams Advanced Engineering supplies the battery which produces 200kW, the equivalent of 270 bhp.

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

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; 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.
