FE - Avalanche Andretti Formula E to be powered by Porsche from 2023

  • gb

Avalanche Andretti Formula E Team and Porsche announced today that they will join forces from the start of Season 9 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

When the world’s first fully-electric racing series heads into a new era with the Gen3 cars in 2023, four Porsche 99X Electric racers will line up on the grid – two fielded by the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team and two by Avalanche Andretti. Porsche will provide the powertrain and other support services for Avalanche Andretti under a long-term agreement.

Michael Andretti, CEO and Chairman, Andretti Autosport, said:

“Our Formula E journey began with Season 1 and we’re very proud to now be looking ahead to the next generation of the sport. Avalanche Andretti FE has an ambition to win, and with the support of Porsche, we have full confidence in our performance and growth. The agreement is an important step in our future and commitment to our sport, partners, and fans. Our history with Porsche as two historic racing teams means this collaboration was a natural fit, and we look forward to a new chapter starting in 2023.”

Thomas Laudenbach, Vice President, Porsche Motorsport, said:

“It’s important for us to support a customer team that demonstrates the same passion and professionalism in Formula E as we do. Avalanche Andretti has raced in Formula E since the inaugural 2014 season. For us, it’s a huge vote of confidence that one of the most experienced teams has chosen to work alongside Porsche from Season 9 onwards and wants to field two Porsche 99X Electric racers. Porsche and Andretti are united by a long tradition, and it all started when Mario and Michael made their Le Mans debuts in a Porsche 956 in 1983. We’re delighted that the tradition is continuing in Formula E, and we hope our partnership will be just as successful.”
