Adam Carroll Named NIO333 FE Reserve Driver for Season 7

The team lead by Christian Silk announced today Adam Carroll as its Reserve Driver for the upcoming 2020/2021 season.

I am very happy to be joining NIO 333 FE Team as Reserve Driver. Formula E is a fascinating championship to work in; it is extremely high level and technically complex,” he stated. 

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.
