Racing in the USA has always been special to me – there’s something about the atmosphere and the energy that just can’t be replicated. The fans are always enthusiastic and knowledgeable and sports event organisers here really know how to put on a show. So, as a team, we’re heading to New York for the 2022 New York E-Prix excited for what lies ahead.
The New York E-Prix is held on the streets of Brooklyn – a district located over the river from Manhattan across the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge. There’s a rawness to this part of the city that is not only really cool to explore and experience but it also gives an extra edge to the thrilling street racing.
We’re very clear on what we need to go to get results this weekend. We have a car capable of battling towards the front of this incredibly competitive grid but we need to be qualifying higher up. If we qualify outside of the Duels, we use too much energy to climb through the pack. So, the goal is to get into the Duels, start in a decent position and take home some points.
