The team, now powered by Porsche, also showed off their new driver line-up, with Andre Lotterer making the move over from TAG Heuer Porsche to Andretti over the off-season to drive alongside Jake Dennis, who returns for a third season in Formula E with the outfit.
Andretti powered to sixth in the Teams' table to round out the Gen3 era, with 27-year-old Brit Dennis sealing a stunning home win in London on the way to sixth in the Drivers' standings. The team sees the opportunity Gen3 brings, with a clean slate across the board and a new lighter, faster, more powerful race car to get the most out of. With the new powertrain partnership with Porsche - expectations are high.
“I’m looking forward to my third season with Avalanche Andretti Formula E," said Dennis. "Season 9 brings alot of changes and getting up to speed with these changes as quick as possible will allow us to excel in the field. Everyone starts on a level playing field and the new racetracks on the calendar will also be a challenge for everyone. I’m excited to get started and working with my new teammate to get us right to the front of the field.”
“Joining Avalanche Andretti Formula E is an exciting start to an already exciting season of Formula E with the new changes and new racetracks," said Lotterer. "I’m looking forward to working with the team and Jake to challenge for podiums and wins this season, getting this team back to the front. I’ve already enjoyed my time working with the team in the off season so I’m excited toget started!”
“We’re really excited to see what this next year brings for Avalanche Andretti Formula E," said Michael Andretti, CEO & Chairman, Andretti Autosport. "We are entering our ninth season, and each year for us in the World Championship gets stronger. We’re proud to again showcase the Avalanche colors, and happy to welcome Andre to the team alongside Jake as we enter the Gen3 era.”
