MARRAKESH, Morocco — Andretti-Steinbrenner Racing Indy Lights driver Colton Herta will make his Formula E debut with MS&AD Andretti at the upcoming rookie test in Marrakesh, Morocco on Jan. 14.

The second-generation racer will test on the Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan, one day following the 2018 Marrakesh E-Prix.

“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.”

Herta is coming off a successful rookie campaign in Indy Lights, where he won races at St. Petersburg and Barber Motorsports Park, as well as captured seven poles and seven podiums on his way 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.”

Herta will test in the MS&AD Andretti Formula E ATEC-03 cars, helping the Andretti Formula E team to continue to develop its Season 4 race car.
