NELSON PIQUET JR
Motor racing is in Nelson’s blood. Starting his career in South American karting, he soon moved to South American F3 and then on to British F3. In 2005, Nelson graduated to GP2, finishing as runner-up to Lewis Hamilton in 2006. After that he graduated to F1 in 2008 alongside Fernando Alonso helping the team secure fourth position overall. In 2010 Nelson moved to NASCAR, becoming the first Brazilian to win a top tier race in 2012. In 2014 he moved to the Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship, impressing with four podiums in his first season. In 2014, Nelson competed in the inaugural 2014/15 FIA Formula E Championship where he won the overall championship title. He aims to repeat this feat during season 4 with his new Jaguar Racing team.
New Zealander Mitch Evans started karting at the age of six and won the NZ Grand Prix at 16. Mentored by former F1 racer Mark Webber, the young driver went on to win the 2012 GP3 title. Moving on to GP2 in 2013 and at just 18 years of age, while still a rookie, Mitch became the youngest driver in GP2 history to stand on the podium after finishing 3rd in Sepang, Malaysia. More success followed in 2015 when Mitch finished second at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In 2016 he made his Formula E debut with Panasonic Jaguar Racing, with season highlights including a 4th place finish in Mexico and earning the VISA Fastest Lap Award trophy in Berlin.
With over a decade of international motor racing under his belt, Chinese/Dutch driver Ho-Pin Tung’s many achievements include test driver roles for Williams F1 and Renault F1, multiple single-seater and Asian Le Mans Series championship wins. He is a multiple race winner in FIA WEC including becoming the first-ever Chinese driver to win the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans.
