Lynn to compete in WEC with Aston Martin Racing

Alex Lynn will compete a dual Formula E and World Endurance Championship programme in 2018 having agreed a deal with Aston Martin Racing.

Lynn will compete in Formula E with DS Virgin Racing, the team he made his debut for in the all-electric series in New York.

The British driver secured pole position in his first qualifying session although failed to finish both races due to technical issues.

He was then promoted to a full-time race seat at the expense of Jose Maria Lopez at DS Virgin Racing.

Lynn is no stranger to endurance racing having entered the final three races of the 2016 season for Manor.

In 2017 he moved to fellow LMP2 outfit G-Drive Racing, taking a class victory at Spa-Francorchamps.

He has also competed in the 12 Hours of Sebring, taking an overall win on his IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship debut.

Several full-time drivers have competed in both Formula E and WEC. Season three championship runner-up Sebastien Buemi missed the New York ePrix to compete in the Six Hours of Nurburgring in July.

Lopez did a dual programme for Toyota and DS Virgin Racing recently, with Nelson Piquet and Nico Prost competing in LMP2 in the endurance racing series.

Lynn’s DS Virgin Racing team-mate, Sam Bird, also competed in both WEC and Formula E having driven for AF Corse in WEC.
