1 Comment

DS Virgin Racing has unveiled its new livery for the second FIA Formula E campaign ahead of next weekend’s final pre-season test at Donington Park.

Following a successful first season that yielded two victories, Virgin Racing announced at the London ePrix that it would be joining forces with Citroen subsidiary DS Automobiles for the second year of racing.

The team has made a good start to pre-season testing with drivers Sam Bird and Jean-Eric Vergne, suffering few reliability issues over the past two weeks at Donington Park.

The livery for season two remains similar to the season one paint scheme, retaining the purple and silver colors as well as incorporating the black of DS.

“The Formula E series is evolving at a fast pace as is the Virgin Racing team, now DS Virgin Racing thanks to our partnership with the DS brand,” team principal Alex Tai said.

“Our season two livery showcases the growth of our team and the global brands with which we are working. I love the addition of the black, which makes the car appear sleek yet aggressive – which is how we intend to race.

“Our traditional Virgin colors are still integrated into the livery, but we have given it a new twist.”

The 2015/2016 FIA Formula E season kicks off in Beijing on October 17.
