Zhou Guanyu joins Techeetah as a development driver

Today, Techeetah Formula E announced that Chinese driver, Zhou Guanyu will be joining the team as a development driver.

Zhou is a current European Formula 3 championship driver and is joining the Techeetah family from the Paris E-Prix onwards.

“We’re delighted to welcome Zhou Guanyu to Techeetah Formula-E as our Development Driver. Zhou is a very talented up and coming Chinese driver that will help us with our development work.

“As we have limited in-season testing, our development work is of the utmost importance and it’s great to have him onboard in this area. Jean-Éric and André are both competing in other series as well as Formula-E this season, so for us to have a talented driver available for simulator sessions is valuable.

“We hope that being around Jean-Éric, André and our engineers will give Zhou some invaluable experience that will help him excel in his career,” said Mark Preston, Team Principal.

“I’m very happy to join Techeetah as a development driver. Formula E is a really exciting space and it’s great to gain some experience within the formula and to help Techeetah with its simulator development. I’ll be attending the Paris E-Prix to get first-hand experience of the race day and to be able to further aid the development team when we come back to the office,” added Zhou Guanyu, Techeetah Formula E Development Driver.
