HWA Racelab makes its debut in Formula E

9 Jan 2019
On December 15, 2018, the fifth season of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship kicked off. The race took place in Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. 

During this race, among others sponsored by Tricorp, HWA Racelab made its debut in Formula E, a motor sport for electrically powered vehicles. In this competition, HWA Racelab is represented by racing drivers Stoffel Vandoorne and Gary Paffett. Unfortunately the proud debutants ended at the bottom with their team. So still plenty of room for improvement!

 

Vandoorne fourth during qualification

The race started promising. During the qualification round, in which the starting positions for the race were being determined, Vandoorne came in fourth and Paffett ninth. The E-Prix itself ended less fortunate for the HWA Racelab drivers. Paffett dropped out of the race and Vandoorne finished in sixteenth place. Eventually Portuguese Da Costa won the first race of Formula E’s season five.

 

Going after revenge in Marrakesh

The first opportunity for our boys to take revenge, will be in Marrakesh on January 12. Tricorp wishes the drivers good luck and in good spirits we will root for HWA Racelab again, especially our staff. They will support the drivers, fully dressed in their Tricorp gear.
