Tom Dillmann will make a wildcard return to Formula E for the next race in Berlin in place of Edoardo Mortara who will be racing in DTM.
Dillmann made his debut in the all-electric in Paris last season standing in for Maro Engel, and was retained for the rest of the season after Stephane Sarrazin made a mid-season switch to Techeetah. He scored a best finish of seventh in New York.
Although he is no longer racing for the team he has been completing simulator work and tested the Gen2 season five car at the first private manufacturer test in Monteblanco.
“I’m delighted to be able to count on Tom once again. He has an amazing capacity to adapt and is also excellent at fine-tuning. I’m convinced he’ll be up to the task,” said Venturi president Gildo Pastor.
The former Formula V8 3.5 champion also recently announced he will be driving in the LMP1 category of the World Endurance Championship for the privateer team Bykolles and will be racing two rounds of the Super Formula series in Japan, subbing for fellow V8 3.5 champion Pietro Fittipaldi.
Venturi currently sits seventh in the teams’ championship on 52 points, scoring a podium finish with Mortara at the second race in Hong Kong.
