Klien to race Formula E

NEWS STORY
13/02/2014

Pitpass' own expert analyst Christian Klien is poised to compete in the inaugural Formula E championship set to begin in the second half of 2014. The announcement follows news that the Austrian will race a full European Le Mans programme with Morand Racing, behind the wheel of a Judd-powered Morgan.

Klien completes the Formula E 'Drivers Club', a collection of twenty-four drivers who have signed up to endorse Formula E which includes the likes of Jaime Alguersuari, Bruno Senna, Sebastian Bourdais and Vitantonio Liuzzi.

However while a member of the 'Drivers Club', Klien and his colleagues are not guaranteed a spot on the twenty-strong grid when racing begins in Beijing in September as teams have free choice over their drivers.

After racing for Jaguar, Red Bull and HRT in Formula One, coupled with stints as test driver at Honda and Sauber, the 30-year-old has stood on the podium at Le Mans with Peugeot, raced V8 Supercars in Australia and tasted success in the International Superstars Series. Last year he joined Morand Racing for a limited LMP2 programme in the European Le Mans Series, scoring second spot at the final race of the year in Paul Ricard.

Should Klien secure a contract it will make for a busy year when combined with the five-race European Le Mans Series which could also include another appearance at the Le Mans 24-Hour race in mid-June.
