Panasonic Jaguar Racing welcomes British driver Alex Lynn back to the team as reserve and test driver. The 26-year-old driver returns to the team having raced seven times for them during the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, replacing Nelson Piquet, who left half-way through the season.
Says Lynn, “I am excited to be re-joining the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team and returning to Formula E. I am familiar with the championship, the team, their goals and how they work.”
Lynn will dovetail his commitments with Panasonic Jaguar Racing this year by competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship.
Says team director, James Barclay, “Mitch Evans and James Calado [Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s drivers] are an exciting combination and they will be strongly supported by Alex throughout the season. Alex is not only a very talented and accomplished driver, he also has valuable experience in Formula E and a great relationship with our team. That experience and relationship will be highly beneficial to our ongoing development. Winning races can only be achieved if you have a hardworking, talented team around you.”
Adds Lynn, “I look forward to playing my part in helping the team achieve their objectives.”
