For this episode of the eTech podcast Ryan Maughan talks to Mark Preston CEO the DS TECHEETAH Formula-E team and CSO & Co-Founder of autonomous driving business StreetDrone.
Mark began his career in Australia where he began working in motorsport designing and building Formula Ford racing cars before deciding to move to the UK to progress a career in Formula 1, initially with Arrows before moving to McLaren and then taking the bold move to start his own team Super Aguri in 2005.
Mark was one of the first to see the potential in Formula-E being only the 6th team to enter the championship whilst it was being set up again under the Aguri banner.
Mark is now the CEO of DS TECHEETAH one of the most successful teams in the Formula-E championship. As if that wasn't enough Mark also co-founded an autonomous vehicle business Streetdrone.
Mark and Ryan discuss motorsport and Mark's career history, where he came from and the successes and challenges that led him to where he is today. They talk about Formula-E in depth how the championship and cars have evolved and what is happening in the next season.
We will be doing a separate episode discussing Streetdrone so keep your eyes out for that in the future!
