Duran replaces Legge for Punta del Este ePrix

Mexican driver Salvador Duran will join Amlin Aguri for this weekend’s Formula E Punta del Este ePrix.

The former A1 GP and FR3.5 race winner joins Amlin Aguri regular and DTM driver Antonio Felix da Costa in place of Katherine Legge.

“I’m delighted with the opportunity to join the Amlin Aguri team and am very grateful to embark on this new venture with an exciting new team in a brand new sport,” said Duran.

“This innovative championship signals a new era for Motorsport and I’m looking forward to getting involved. I have been following the team and the championship closely and I can see that this car reacts differently which is a fantastic challenge.

“I am a big fan of both clean energy and this new electric technology and I believe innovation from this series will help develop transport solutions that will make a big difference to the lives of people right across Latin America and the world.”

Amlin Aguri Team Principal Mark Preston is hoping to draw on Duran’s experience when it comes to single-make series.

“Salvador knows what it takes to succeed in a one-make championship and for Amlin Aguri that was a key factor in our decision to bring him [Duran] in once we knew Katherine would be tied-up elsewhere. Having Salvador together with Antonio shows that we continue to have a strong driver line-up.”
