31 JULY 2020, BANBURY, UK – Mahindra Racing will embark on a challenge the likes of which has not been seen in motorsport before, when the ABB FIA Formula E Championship resumes its 2019/20 season next week, with the Season Six Finale; a festival that will see teams competing half the season’s races in just nine days. Competing in the six Berlin E-Prix races for the team will be Jérôme D’Ambrosio in the #64, with Alex Lynn alongside him making his debut for Mahindra Racing in the #94.
After a pause in the season of over five months due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the team is delighted that the FIA and Formula E has found a safe way to resume racing and conclude the season, and is excited to return to the track that holds happy memories for the squad, with Felix Rosenqvist sealing its debut win there in 2017, and Nick Heidfeld standing beside him on the rostrum to make it a double podium. Two of the Season Six Finale races will take place on the traditional Berlin Tempelhof circuit, with the other four being held on two modified configurations of the track. To ensure Mahindra Racing is prepared under the current circumstances, official test and reserve driver Nick Heidfeld will be present in Berlin.
Ahead of the 2019/20 season, Mahindra Racing unveiled an initiative it is proud of; the commitment to plant a tree for every Fanboost vote received for its drivers throughout the campaign. When Covid-19 put a pause on real racing, the team extended the initiative to the Race At Home eSports competition and, through that, has added 100,000 trees to what will be the eventual tally. The Season Six Finale in Berlin will provide fans with the opportunity to keep on engaging with the initiative by voting for Jérôme and Alex in Fanboost and be a part of the forest that Mahindra Racing will be able to plant thanks to their participation. Voting is open now for the first race and more information can be found at the voting website: fanboost.fiaformulae.com
The Berlin E-Prix Season Six Finale will comprise six races, competed over nine days, as follows. All races begin at 19.04hrs local time.
• Wednesday 5 August
• Thursday 6 August
