Mouser backs Geox Dragon Formula E team in Rome and beyond

The Mouser-sponsored Formula E team returns to Rome on April 13 to battle it out on the ancient and unforgiving streets of Italy's capital. The team is looking to clinch the win on the seventh leg of the 2018-19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship racing season.

Mouser Electronics is sponsoring the Geox Dragon Formula E team throughout the 2018-19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship season in collaboration with TTI, Inc. and valued suppliers Molex and AVX. This is the fifth-straight year that Mouser and Molex have sponsored Formula E racing.

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. Racing is all about speed and endurance, and racing sponsorships are an innovative way for Mouser to communicate its performance-driven business model and promote the newest technologies from its manufacturer partners.

Team drivers for the Rome E-Prix include three-time World Touring Car Driver's Champion and multiple FIA Formula E podium finisher José María "Pechito" López, along with Formula 2 race winner and Dragon Test and Reserve driver, Maximilian Günther, replacing Felipe Nasr for the race.

This time they will face the Circuito cittadino dell'EUR, a 1.8-mile street course through Rome's EUR neighbourhood. It features 21 turns, starting at Via Cristoforo Colombo and finishing at the Marconi Obelisk, passing by the Rome Convention Center and the Palazzo dei Congressi.

Fans can cast a vote for López and Günther 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 favourite 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 opened April 8 and is available up to 15 minutes into the race.

After the Rome E-Prix the series travels to Paris on April 27, Monaco on May 11, Berlin on May 25, and Bern on June 22. The series once again ends the season with a double-header in New York, July 13 and 14. For more information about Formula E and to register and vote in Fanboost, visit www.mouser.com/formula-e.
