Jake Dennis will continue at Avalanche Andretti into Season 9 and beyond, with the team announcing the Brit's signed a new multi-year deal.
Dennis has been a part of the Andretti stable since 2020, when he joined the fold having caught the eye amid serious competition during an intensive selection process over a number of test sessions.
The 25-year-old was top rookie in his debut season, winning two races on the way to third in the Drivers' World Championship - a technical issue in the final race putting paid to a real title tilt. Dennis won on home soil with a Grand Slam in London in Season 8, adding another couple of podiums in Diriyah and Seoul, respectively.
“I started my Formula E journey with Andretti and I’m excited to continue to work with the team that has continued to support my career in this series," says Dennis. "Season 9 with the Gen3 era is an exciting time for all teams, and for us in particular with the new relationship with Porsche supplying the powertrain. I’m super motivated for next year and feel certain that with the dedication, teamwork, and investment I’ve seen over the past two years with Avalanche Andretti Formula E, we’ll be able to fight for wins and titles in the future.”
Team boss Michael Andretti is delighted to have tied Dennis down on a long-term contract, as the team's preparation for Gen3 continues.
“Keeping Jake a part of Avalanche Andretti Formula E is a great step for our success as a team heading into Season 9," says Andretti. "Jake has been a successful driver and leader over the past two years with our team, and we are looking forward to this continuing into Season 9 and beyond. This step is a continuation of building Avalanche Andretti towards consistency to achieve our main mission, to win.”
“Jake is a formidable competitor and has shown that in the two seasons he has been with Avalanche Andretti Formula E," adds Team Principal Roger Griffiths. "His determination, talent, and charisma on and off track, gives us great confidence that he will play an integral part in continuing to push us forward."
