Talented, tall, and now electric: That’s Justin Wilson for you in 2015.
The Englishman will continue his relationship with Andretti Autosport for at least one more weekend this year, as he’ll pinch-hit for Scott Speed at the June 6 round of the FIA Formula E Championship at Moscow, Russia.
Speed will be unavailable as he’ll be in action for the Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross team at the X Games in Austin, Texas that weekend.
For Wilson, it will mean he’s driven an LMP2 car (Ligier JS P2 Honda), an IndyCar (Honda) and now an FIA Formula E car this year.
“I’m looking forward to making my Formula E debut with Andretti,” Wilson said in a release. “I’ve been following the Championship from the start, and it is a very interesting formula. I appreciate Michael (Andretti) giving me this opportunity. I know there is a lot to learn, but I am excited about this new challenge and looking forward to the Moscow ePrix weekend already!”
