The team lead by Christian Silk announced today Adam Carroll as its Reserve Driver for the upcoming 2020/2021 season.
“It has been interesting to see how the cars and systems have developed since I raced with the series in 2017, and the NIO 333 team is pushing very hard for the coming season. I look forward to the challenge ahead.”
The British driver contested the third season of the all-electric series as a full-time driver for the Jaguar Racing team, alongside Mitch Evans.
The 2009 winner of the A1GP series, holds vast experience in a range of motorsports categories, including the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), European Le Mans Series, GP2 – currently FIA Formula 2 championship, DTM, IndyCar, or British F3, to name a few.
In 2019, he debuted in the Ferrari Challenge with the Ferrari Budapest team to claim the world championship title in Trofeo Pirelli.
In 2021, the 38-year-old will combine a GT Cup series campaign with his Formula E duties.
“Not only is Adam a very talented racing driver, but he is also a good friend of the team. The role of Reserve Driver is obviously very important to us, and I am very grateful that we have such a safe pair of hands in this key position.
“I am sure I speak for the whole team when I say we are looking forward to working with Adam again,” said Christian Silk, NIO 333 FE – Team Principal.
Carrol will be present at the Diriyah E-Prix in Saudi Arabia when the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship kicks off with two rounds held on February 26 and 27 – Formula E’s first-ever night races.
In that regard, the driver has been working on the team’s DIL simulator at Oxfordshire, UK.
