There will be just 18 competitors entered for the FIA Formula E Championship season opener, the Beijing ePrix, after the Trulli team’s entry – the Motomatica JT-01 – was not submitted for the official scrutineering process ahead of the event.
The team claimed that key components had been held up in customs and were granted an extension to submit these for sealing. These components were not submitted in time.
As the car has not been scrutineered, the team is not part of the official entry list for the season two opening round, which takes place in Beijing on October 24.
Trulli will be able to resubmit its car for scrutineering for race two of the season, the Putrajaya ePrix on November 7.
