Oliver Rowland: End of an Era

By Oliver Rowland | on August 12, 2022

The final race of the 2021-22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship not only marks Mahindra Racing’s 100th Formula E run but also the end of the Gen 2 era. Oliver hopes the team can sign off the proceedings in style...

Season 8 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship draws to a close this weekend in Seoul, South Korea and, as well as being the concluding event of the season, it also marks Mahindra Racing’s 100th Formula E race and will be the final contest of the Gen 2 era…

Coming off the back of the disappointment of London, we’ll be looking to try and score some points this weekend. With the potential we showed at the last event I know that we are capable of a good qualifying performance and race result, and I’m just hoping that I’ll get the chance to demonstrate this in Seoul.

This weekend it’s a new track for everyone, making it a level playing field when we jump in the cars on Friday. With the equal experience to other teams, there’s a genuine chance to start quicker than everyone else and see what we can get out of it. After all my running in the simulator, I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can achieve surrounded by that epic backdrop.

Speaking candidly, this has been a difficult season for us, and I know we have the capability to do better. I am hoping to wrap up the Gen 2 era on a strong note before the whole paddock turns its attention to the possibilities of Gen 3. At this event we are also celebrating 100 races for Mahindra Racing and Formula E – I’m hoping we can get the results to celebrate in style!

Keep an eye on the Mahindra Racing social channels to follow our performance over the weekend and to see exclusive and behind-the-scenes content. You can also Fanboost me, which gives me an extra boost of power during the race.
