Molex, TTI, AVX Join Mouser to Support Electric Car Racing Team
May 23, 2019 – Following another top-ten finish at the Monaco E-Prix, the Mouser Electronics-sponsored GEOX DRAGON Formula E racing team heads to Germany for the Berlin E-Prix on May 25. At the Monaco E-Prix, driver José María “Pechito” López continued GEOX DRAGON’s successful season, coming in tenth.
Mouser is sponsoring the GEOX DRAGON Formula E team throughout the 2018-19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship racing season, in collaboration with TTI, Inc. and valued suppliers Molex and AVX. This is the fifth-straight year that Mouser and Molex have sponsored Formula E racing.
The Formula E series features cars that are powered solely by electricity and represent a vision for the future of the motor sports industry, serving as a framework for research and development around zero-emission motoring. Racing is all about speed and endurance, and racing sponsorships are an innovative way for Mouser to communicate its performance-driven business model and promote the newest technologies from its manufacturer partners.
Team drivers for the Berlin E-Prix are three-time World Touring Car Driver’s Champion and multiple FIA Formula E podium finisher López and GEOX DRAGON Test and Reserve Driver, Maximilian Günther, who will take the wheel in his home country.
Fans can cast a vote for López and Günther in FANBOOST, which allows fans to play an active role in influencing the outcome of the race. FANBOOST gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite driver and award them an extra boost of power during the race. The five drivers with the most FANBOOST votes are awarded a significant burst of power, which they can deploy in a 5-second window during the second half of the race. FANBOOST voting for the Berlin E-Prix opened May 20 and is available up to 15 minutes into the race.
The Formula E series finishes out the Europe races in Bern, Switzerland, on June 22, before the season-ending double-header in New York, July 13 and 14.
