Drayson Racing has been replaced by TrulliGP for the inaugural all-electric Formula E season. The new team will be managed by Formula 1 winner Jarno Trulli who will also drive one of his cars during the season.

The 39-year-old Italian is the eighth driver (in a field of 20) to have a confirmed ride for the inaugural 2014-2015 season.

Former Formula 1 drivers Jarno Trulli, Jerome d’Ambrosio, Nick Heidfeld, and six-time GP2 race winner Sam Bird, have added their names to the Formula E Drivers’ Club.

In September, when FIA’s new electric racing series kicks off, 20 drivers will take to the Beijing street circuit, with only Lucas di Grassi and Daniel Abt having confirmed rides. However, the ever-growing pool of drivers that the teams will have to choose from continues to boast some impressive names.
