Mouser Electronics is celebrating the success of the GEOX DRAGON Formula E racing team in a formidable racing season. Driving the Mouser-sponsored car this year were three-time FIA WTCC drivers’ champion José María López and former test and reserve driver Maximilian Günther.
Just over halfway through the season, Günther nabbed a fifth-place finish on a rain-slicked track at the Paris E-Prix. In the next race, at Monaco, López earned a hard-fought top-10 finish plus one of the race’s coveted FANBOOST slots — where fans vote for their favorite driver to award them a significant, five-second burst of power. Two races later, Günther put up an impressive Super Pole run after qualifications in Bern and expertly powered the No. 6 electric racecar to another fifth place finish after scraping through trouble early in the race.
This was the fifth season of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship and the fifth season Mouser Electronics was a team sponsor along with valued supplier Molex. Mouser and Molex sponsored the team throughout the season in collaboration with AVX and TTI, Inc.
“López, Günther, and the entire team showed great determination in a very demanding season,” said Todd McAtee, Vice President, Americas’ Business Development for Mouser Electronics. “Everyone here at Mouser is proud of the team and their awesome top-10 finishes, and we’re excited to be a part of the electric car racing revolution and the GEOX DRAGON racing team.”
“Molex is proud to have once again teamed up with Mouser Electronics to sponsor this dedicated motorsport team,” said Fred Bell, Vice President of Global Distribution, Molex. “At Molex, we are always looking for ways to advance the electric automotive industry by developing solutions that help racing teams and everyday drivers alike.”
The Formula E series features cars that are powered solely by electricity and represent a vision for the future of the motor sports industry, serving as a framework for research and development around zero-emission motoring. Racing is all about speed and endurance, and racing sponsorships are an innovative way for Mouser to communicate its performance-driven business model and promote the newest technologies from its manufacturer partners.
“TTI would like to congratulate the entire team for the hard work they put in all season long. We are excited to be a part of such a cutting-edge racing series and to promote all the new technologies that go with it,” said Mike Morton, TTI’s Chief Operating Officer.
“This year’s team fought hard in every race, and we at AVX congratulate them on that determination,” said Eric Pratt, AVX’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “It is special to be a part of such an advanced racing series and to be on the forefront of the electric car movement.”
