DS Virgin Racing completes move to SilverstoneLeading Formula E team DS Virgin Racing (www.ds-virginracing.com) has completed the move of its operational arm to new ‘state of the art’ facilities at Silverstone Park.

Having competed in the all-electric FIA Formula E Championship since its inception, the team moved in last summer to prepare for the 2018 season, and it has now put the finishing touches to its new 11,000ft2 base, which is ‘home’ to around 25 permanent staff and the team’s race-winning cars.

The team’s commercial headquarters remain in central London, and its new Silverstone base will work with its partner DS Automobiles — based in Satory, France.

Team manager Leon Price said: “We looked at a number of locations, but the high standard of facilities at Silverstone Park, together with the skill set and like-minded businesses on the doorstep, made it an easy choice.

“It’s great to be now fully settled in and to have a strong base — just a stone’s throw from the home of British racing — in which to prepare for the demands of the Formula E series.”

“Roz Bird, commercial director at Silverstone Park, said: “DS Virgin Racing is a very exciting addition to our tenant roster, because it’s a great name, operating at the highest levels, and the company is passionate about innovation around electric vehicles and sustainability.”
