Conor Daly has been confirmed at the Lazarus GP2 team for the full 2014 season.
Daly took part in the opening race of the year in Bahrain for the team, but on a one-off basis, after testing extensively in both Abu Dhabi in Bahrain.
A 20-turn street circuit consisting of four chicanes on the roads of Beijing has been revealed as the inaugural circuit for the new Formula E Championship.
The series will run ten races from September 2014 to June 2015, and will race on street courses only in cities such as Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro and Monte Carlo and will finish up the season in London. The long straights and late braking zones drawn out in the design hope to provide for some exciting racing to kick off the series, which will be shown LIVE on Fox Sports 1 all season long.
U.S. race fans have desperately been searching for a current day American racer to compete and succeed in Formula 1, but to no avail.
GP3 standout and Indianapolis-native Conor Daly may soon change that.
Daly, son of former F1 racer Derek Daly, wasn’t able to score a win at Spa-Francorchamps, but a double podium effort places him in prime position to score his first GP3 championship.
“It was awesome to get two second places in a weekend,” Daly said. “That’s pretty good after some of the weekends we’ve had previously. It’s good to be in the points fight now.”
