Gary Holland has been appointed the new team manager of Dragon Racing’s Formula E division.

Holland has spent the last two and a half years with Jota Sport, helping the British team secure major success in sports car racing – including victory in their class at the recent Le Mans 24 Hours.

Holland replaces racing veteran David Stubbs, who joined Dragon from Techeetah in 2017, and will link up with new chief engineer Jakob Andreasen.

Andreasen has previously worked for Williams and McLaren in Formula 1.

The team confirmed Andreasen’s appointment last week, with team owner and team principal Jay Penske saying that it was making “significant progress” towards its goals.

“We are very excited to have him become an integral part of the leadership of the organisation,” Penske said.

Dragon Racing are expected to confirm their driver line-up for next season’s Formula E season soon.

Jose Maria Lopez is a favorite to return while test and development driver Maximilian Guenther is also in the running.

Both drivers are scheduled to conduct further development work on the Penske EV-03 in Spain next month.

Dragon Racing finished ninth on the 10-team Drivers’ Championship log, picking up 41 points through the 2017/18 season.
