Herta Set to Expand Racing Horizons

By  | 

While some drivers are spending the off-season testing or relaxing, Colton Herta is taking a different approach. The Andretti-Seinbrenner Racing driver will make his Formula E debut with MS&AD Andretti at the upcoming rookie test in Marrakesh, Morocco on January 14.

“I was super excited when I got the call and I can’t thank MS&AD Andretti Formula E enough for the opportunity,” said Herta. “It’s the best Christmas present I could’ve gotten.”

The Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires competitor will take to the Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan, one day following the 2018 Marrakesh E-Prix.

In his rookie campaign, he impressed with victories at St. Petersburg and Barber Motorsports Park, en route to a third-place finish in the 2017 championship.

“I think Colton was very impressive in his rookie season of Indy Lights and he hasn’t even turned 18 yet,” said Andretti Formula E CEO Michael Andretti. “We are very excited to see what he can do in our Formula E car. He is one of the future stars in open-wheel racing and can be a real asset at the rookie test in Marrakesh.”
