Double FIA WEC World Champion, and former Formula One driver, Brendon Hartley makes his all-electric debut with Geox Dragon in the 2019/20 campaign of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.
Following successful drives in top-tier hybrid-powered series including Formula One and the LMP1 category of the World Endurance Car Championship, Hartley takes up a drive with all-American team Geox Racing.
Starting his racing career in 2002 in his home country of New Zealand, the Kiwi quickly got to grips with Formula First New Zealand, where he raced for two years before progressing to the open-wheel Toyota Racing Series in 2005 and Formula Three in 2007 - the same year he won his first championship in Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 with the Epsilon Red Bull Team.
One year later, Hartley secured the role of Test Driver for the Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula One outfit aged 18. The Kiwi would take up the role of Test and Reserve Driver for both Toro Rosso and the Red Bull Racing F1 teams for the 2009 and 2010 seasons before finally making his racing debut with Scuderia Toro Rosso at the 2017 United States Grand Prix, replacing Pierre Gasly, who was absent to take part in the final round of the Japanese Super Formula Championship. Before this, Hartley had enjoyed two years as Test Driver with Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team.
Following Formula One, Hartley gained prominence as a sportscar driver after he won two WEC Championships, and scored twelve wins including a 24 Hours of Le Mans outright victory in 2017 with Porsche. Ahead of joining all-American outfit Geox Dragon, Hartley tested for Porsche's Formula E outfit in March 2019.
