Hugh Barter to drive for Maserati MSG Racing in Formula E Rookie Test

Hugh Barter will drive for Maserati MSG Racing in Berlin for the Formula E Rookie Test.

The Australian driver is driving for Campos in FIA F3 this year and showed impressive pace in Bahrain qualifying in fifth place.

Barter will drive alongside the reigning F2 champion Felipe Drugovich on the 24th of April for Maserati.

The FIA F3 driver said: “I would like to thank Maserati MSG Racing for giving me the opportunity to experience Formula E for the very first time.

“I’ve really enjoyed my experience in the sim so far and I can’t wait to get out on the track in Berlin. 

“Working closely with James, Edo and Max will be an invaluable learning experience for me, especially at this stage of my career.”

Barter sits 18th in the championship after two rounds with a best finish of 11th place.

Drugovich is eagerly anticipating his first outing in a Formula E car and the championship is one that has captivated the Brazilian.

“I can’t wait to get my first taste of the Maserati Tipo Folgore and Gen3 Formula E in Berlin.

“Formula E is a category that has always fascinated me, and it will be intriguing to experience the differences of a fully-electric car in comparison to the single-seaters I’ve raced in recent seasons. 

“Knowing that I will be playing an active role in the development of such an iconic brand, in its first season back in World Championship motorsport, is a huge honour. I’m very excited.”

The Rookie Test will also feature some other formidable talent in Berlin.

GB3 champion Luke Browning and FIA F3 champion Victor Martins will drive for NEOM McLaren Formula E Team and Nissan Formula E team.
