Alex Lynn has been confirmed as Jose Maria Lopez’s replacement at the DS Virgin Racing for the New York Formula E double-header.
Lynn will be joining Sam Bird in an all-British line-up at DS Virgin for the two Brooklyn races.
Lopez, like Toyota WEC teammate and current Formula E points leader Sebastien Buemi, will miss the inaugural New York event to contest the clashing Nurburgring 6 Hours.
Lynn, who has attended races in a reserve capacity for DS Virgin and took part in shakedown in Mexico City in Lopez’s place, will make his Formula E debut after a number of test days developing the Anglo-French team’s season four car.
“New York has been underlined in my diary now for a long time and to get it confirmed is really exciting for me,” Lynn said.
“To be there with Sam, who I get on with really well, is great and he will be a top mentor for me to be racing alongside in my first Formula E race weekend.”
