Avalanche Andretti and Jake Dennis confirm multi-year agreement
The Brit finished sixth with Andretti in this year's championship
Avalanche Andretti and Jake Dennis have confirmed a multi-year agreement for the coming Formula E seasons.
The 25-year-old British racing driver will be representing Andretti for Season 9 – which sees Formula E enter the Gen 3 era – and beyond. He made his debut in the 2020-21 season, brought Andretti two wins and finished third in the World Drivers’ Championship.
In Season 8, he celebrated a home win with the team. It was the first grand slam to be achieved by any driver this season at the London E-Prix.
CEO and Chairman of Andretti Autosport, Michael Andretti, said, “Keeping Jake a part of Avalanche Andretti FE is a great step for our success as a team heading into Season 9. Jake has been a successful driver and leader over the past two years with our team, and we are looking forward to this continuing into Season 9 and beyond. This step is a continuation of building Avalanche Andretti FE towards consistency to achieve our main mission, to win.”
Dennis is looking forward to continuing this partnership. He is also eager for this season, as Andretti will now be powered by Porsche.
He said, “I started my Formula E journey with Andretti and I’m excited to continue to work with the team that has continued to support my career in this series. Season 9 with the Gen3 era is an exciting time for all teams, and for us in particular with the new relationship with Porsche supplying the powertrain. I’m super motivated for next year and feel certain that with the dedication, teamwork, and investment I’ve seen over the past two years with Avalanche Andretti FE, we’ll be able to fight for wins and titles in the future.”
Avalanche Andretti Team Principal Roger Griffiths also had his say: “Jake is a formidable competitor and has shown that in the two seasons he has been with Avalanche Andretti FE. His determination, talent, and charisma on and off track, gives us great confidence that he will play an integral part in continuing to push us forward to compete and excel at the front of the field in the FIA Formula E World Championship.”
