The Mouser Electronics-supported Formula E all-electric racing team heads to Rome for the second stop, and the third and fourth races, of the 2020–21 ABB FIA Formula E season on April 10 and 11. Mouser will be cheering on the DRAGON / PENSKE AUTOSPORT team, who is looking to keep their momentum going after both drivers earned top-five finishes at the second race of the Diriyah E-Prix. Team drivers Sérgio Sette Câmara and Nico Müller came in fourth and fifth, respectively, at Diriyah to earn 22 points for the team at the season-opening doubleheader.
Coming off that fantastic performance, the team takes to a completely new street course at the Rome E-Prix. The contest in Italy’s historic capital city will be both Câmara’s and Müller’s first race at the revamped EUR district circuit. Both drivers have been working hard in the weeks since the Diriyah E-Prix, logging hours in the simulator at the team’s race shop in Silverstone, U.K., to prepare for the doubleheader in the Eternal City.
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. The Gen2 cars offer a huge step forward in electric vehicle racing technology, with maximum power of 250 kW and speeds up to 280 km/h. Racing is all about speed and endurance, and racing partnerships are an innovative way for Mouser to communicate its performance-driven business model and promote the newest technologies from its manufacturer partners.
Mouser is partnering with the Formula E team throughout the 2020–21 season in collaboration with TTI, Inc. and valued manufacturers Molex and AVX. This is the seventh-straight year that Mouser and Molex have sponsored Formula E racing. Müller is piloting the No. 6 car, and Sette Câmara is behind the wheel of the No. 7 car.
Fans can further support the team by casting a vote for Müller and Sette Câmara in FANBOOST, which allows fans to play an active role in influencing the outcome of the race. FANBOOST gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite driver and award them an extra boost of power during the race. The five drivers with the most FANBOOST votes are awarded a significant burst of power, which they can deploy in a 5-second window during the second half of the race. FANBOOST voting for the Rome E-Prix opens April 7 and is available up to 15 minutes into the race.
