Car­roll aims for For­mula E switch

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
