Carroll aims for Formula E switch
Adam Carroll is keen on earning a Formula E drive for season three of the championship.
The 33-year-old, a race winner in GP2 and the 2008/09 A1 Grand Prix champion, tested with Mahindra in the build up to the current campaign.
He was an unused substitute for the Indian team at the most recent round in Buenos Aires.
“It’s a proper world championship, with a very exciting concept,” he said. “As a professional driver I don’t see how you can’t be interested in it.”
Carroll has been dovetailing frontrunning Blancpain Endurance Series, European Le Mans Series and British GT campaigns with driver coaching in recent seasons. He last raced a single-seater in 2011 when he scored a podium in a Formula Renault 3.5 one-off and won races for Campos – which helps run the Mahindra Formula E effort – in a bit-part Auto GP campaign.
Carroll’s regular GT team, Gulf Racing, has secured a World Endurance Championship GTE Am entry. Only team owner Mike Wainwright is signed.
