Dragon Racing has appointed Gary Holland as its new team manager in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

Holland arrives in the all-electric championship after a two-and-a-half year stint with Jota Sport, having played an integral part in the British team’s success in sports car racing, which included class victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

He replaces racing veteran David Stubbs, who joined Dragon from Techeetah one year ago.

The move to recruit Holland, who started his role on Tuesday at Dragon’s Donington Park base, comes just a week after e-racing365 revealed that the American team had appointed former Williams and McLaren engineer Jakob Andreasen as its new chief engineer.

The team subsequently confirmed Andreasen’s appointment this week, with team owner and team principal Jay Penske saying that it was making “significant progress” towards its goals.

“We are very excited to have him become an integral part of the leadership of the organization,” Penske said.

Holland will work in the restructured organization with team stalwart Andy Hoadley, who joined the team in 2014.

Holland and Hoadley previously worked together at Ram Racing in 2012-13.

E-racing365 understands that the team will announce its Season Five driver lineup shortly.

Jose Maria Lopez is a favorite to return while test and development driver Maximilian Guenther is also in the running.

Both drivers are scheduled to conduct further development work on the Penske EV-03 in Spain next month.
