Beitske Visser is under consideration for a role with BMW i Andretti Motorsport in the upcoming ABB FIA Formula E Championship season.
The BMW-contracted driver has been racing in European GT4 competition in recent seasons and is set to test a BMW iFE.18 soon, ahead of a possible test and reserve role with the BMW Andretti operation.
BMW Motorsport director Jens Marquardt confirmed that Visser could play a part in the Munich-based manufacturer’s Formula E program.
“It is obviously a possibility,” Marquardt told e-racing365 last month. “She is on our program because we believe she has really good skills and is strong.”
“We have seen she has been strong in GT4 this year and was successful. We also see on the simulator that she has great skills and potential and we are looking at the next steps with her.
“We are not taking it as, ‘She is female and where can she drive?’. It is more that we have a good junior and she has a lot of potential and we will see where we get with her.”
Visser has long been considered one of the most promising female racers on the international scene having raced in the Formula V8 3.5 Series for three seasons between 2014-16.
Prior to that, the now 23-year old won three races in the ADAC Formel Masters series in 2012-13.
She could run at the official Formula E test which will be held the day after the Ad Diriyah E-Prix on Sunday Dec. 16.
