The Renault e.dams Formula E team revealed a new agreement with precision connector and cable designer LEMO, today at the Swiss company’s head office in Ecublens.
LEMO CEO Alexandre Pesci was joined by Renault e.dams Senior Team Managers Alain Prost as well as drivers Sebastien Buemi and Nico Prost, to announce the new partnership this afternoon.
As current FIA Formula E Championship leaders in both the Teams’ and Drivers’ standings, Renault e.dams is a perfect match for market-leader LEMO and its proven track record for producing top quality custom connections and cable solutions for a variety of applications.
The LEMO brand, which is already present in the top echelons of motor racing, will adorn the Renault Z.E.15 from the Buenos Aires ePrix, the fourth round of the FIA’s first all-electric racing series, which takes place on the streets of the Argentinian capital on February 6.
With the forward-thinking championship attracting crowds of people to its thrilling city centre races since the inaugural 2014/15 season, this partnership is an ideal platform for LEMO to expand its brand into the high profile world of electric racing and to work with Renault e.dams to develop new technology.
Alexandre Pesci, LEMO CEO: “Having known Alain and Nicolas Prost for some time and wanting to expand our exposure into more motorsport categories, it was only natural for LEMO to choose Renault e.dams as a partner. Given the impact that Formula E has had since its inception, it is a great platform for us to explore new products, materials and cable technology. We look forward to how the partnership may develop in the future.”
Alain Prost, Renault e.dams Senior Team Manager: “Obviously, we’d like to thank LEMO for their support and trust. They are a well-known and respected brand with a passion for motor racing, which made them the perfect choice for us. This partnership will allow us to progress and help us become even more competitive.”
Vincent Gaillardot, Renault Formula E Project Leader: “We’re delighted to welcome a new partner to the team, especially one as well known in the motorsport and automotive industry as LEMO. We really hope that we can work together in order to make some real advances in Formula E technology.”
