Geox Dragon has been a mainstay of Formula E since the inaugural season, competing in every race to date. Founded by Jay Penske in 2007, the outfit is the only American team on the grid.
With a history dating back to very first Formula E race in Beijing, 2014, the team entered the all-electric series after seven years competing in IndyCar. Founded by Jay Penske in 2007, Geox Dragon is headquartered in Los Angeles, California – the largest single metropolitan EV (electric vehicle) market in the world – with additional operations in the U.K. at the Donington Park racing circuit.
Getting off to a strong start, the team finished runners-up to Renault e.dams in the inaugural season before dropping to fourth the following year. For the third season of Formula E (2016/17) the team partnered up with Californian electric car maker Faraday Future to become Faraday Future Dragon Racing. Despite the new partnership, the team finished eighth, scoring just 41 points over the course of the season. Parting ways with Faraday Future for the 2017/18 season, the team rebranded back to Dragon. With Jose “Pechito” Maria Lopez and Jerome d'Ambrosio behind the wheel, the team finished a tough season second from the bottom.
For the 2018/19 season, the newly named Geox Dragon team sees frontman Jose-Maria Lopez joined by rookie Maximilian Guenther as they challenge for the title in the fifth season behind the wheel of the new Gen2 Penske EV-3.
