Penrith racing driver Oliver Turvey returns to action in the Formula E World Championship this weekend as the world’s premier all-electric racing series visits Puebla in Mexico for the first time.
Mexico has been a mainstay of the Formula E calendar since 2016, with the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez track in Mexico City hosting some spectacular electric races.
But with the usual track currently a COVID-19 vaccination centre, the championship has moved into new territory at the Autodromo Miguel E. Abed in Puebla.
Always one of the most popular locations with drivers due to the passionate local fanbase, an agreed pandemic protocol will also allow 10,000 spectators into the track each day.
Reigning champion Antonio Felix da Costa roared back into title contention last time out in Monaco with a stunning race victory delivered via a last-lap overtake, but a clear favourite for the Championship has yet to appear as the season heads into its second half.
NIO 333’s Turvey finished 19th in that race at the iconic Circuit de Monaco and currently sits 20th in the Championship standings.
You can catch all the action from the Autodromo Miguel E. Abed in Rounds 8 and 9 of Season 7 of the Formula E World Championship live on BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport Website from 9.30pm tomorrow and Sunday.
