It is great to announce that I will be running the IP/Intellect batteries in 2015 and beyond. To have a deal with one of the largest LiPo battery manufacturers in the world is amazing and a unique opportunity. To be their first directly supported driver is a huge honour and the perfect way to complete my 2015 race package. Thank you to Intellect and especially Oliver Ng for placing their trust in me and I can’t wait to run the brand new packs in the next race!
