Goodmayes racing driver Alex Lynn returns to action in The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship this weekend as the world’s premier all-electric racing series visits Puebla in Mexico for the first time.

Mexico has been a mainstay of the Formula E calendar since 2016, with the iconic Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez track in Mexico City hosting some spectacular electric races.

But with the usual track currently a COVID-19 vaccination centre the Championship has moved into new territory at the Autodromo Miguel E. Abed in Puebla.

Always one of the most popular locations with drivers due to the passionate local fanbase, an agreed pandemic protocol will also allow 10,000 spectators into the track each day.

Reigning champion Antonio Felix da Costa roared back into title contention last time out in Monaco with a stunning race victory delivered via a last-lap overtake, but a clear favourite for the Championship has yet to appear as the season heads into its second half.
