The Nissan e.dams Formula E racing team team has now moved up to fourth place in the manufacturers’ championship of the all-electric race series, after an all action race around the streets of Marrakesh.
At the checkered flag, British driver Oliver Rowland completed a strong top ten result crossing the line ninth in car #22. The Nissan e.dams team scored 14 championship points across the weekend, taking them to fourth overall in the 12-team manufacturer standings.
“Historically we run well here at the Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan,” said Michael Carcamo, Nissan global motorsports director.
Nissan is using Formula E to demonstrate the power and performance of its zero-emission EV technology, and to share its forward-looking Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision for changing how cars are driven, powered and connected with society.
“We were one of two teams with both cars in the top ten. This is very positive,” said Olivier Driot, Nissan e.dams team principal. “As we look ahead, we are scoring consistent points, qualifying well and moving in the right direction in the championship.”
What Oliver Rowland had to say:
“A bit of an average weekend for me. My qualifying wasn’t the best, in ninth position. I got a good start in the race and was up to sixth with the plan to conserve energy for the end of the race. But our strategy didn’t really play out and I lost some places, finally finishing ninth. Still, we scored some points today and we’ll build on this.”
