Duly, Cassidy did build on that promising first season with more silverware in London, and a maiden win in New York City, going one better than he’d managed a year prior. Cassidy stays put in Season 9 for the start of the Gen3 era and welcomes Formula E legend Sebastien Buemi alongside.
A true racing renaissance man, Nick Cassidy's racing career has seen him successfully jump from GT cars to single-seaters, and he has already demonstrated his speed for the Envision Virgin Racing in the annual Marrakesh Rookie Test.
Born in Auckland, New Zealand, Cassidy started racing at a young age, competing in karting at just six years old, kicking off a successful career in his home country and taking on the likes of future Formula E winner Mitch Evans.
Graduating to single-seaters, Cassidy set off with a winning debut in the Formula First New Zealand series in 2008, before eventually becoming one of the most successful drivers in the history of the Toyota Racing Series.
After back-to-back championship victories in the Toyota Racing Series, Cassidy travelled to Europe to take on the FIA Formula 3 European and Renault 2.0 championships. The New Zealander also got his first sampling of street racing with an impressive third-place finish in his first-ever appearance at the challenging Macau Grand Prix.
Cassidy then branched out into Japanese motorsport and dual driving duties in the Super Formula and Super GT championships. Driving for the legendary TOM'S racing outfit, the Kiwi continued his rise in Japan taking the Super GT title in 2017, following this with Drivers' Championship honours in the 2019 Super Formula season.
After a star appearance topping the timesheets at the 2020 Marrakesh Rookie Test, Cassidy jumps back into the seat with Envision Virgin Racing for his debut in the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
Cassidy consistently impressed and a storming second half of his season yielded two trips to the rostrum of his own, in Puebla and New York City on his way to 15 in the Drivers’ standings. Season 8 yielded more progress as the Kiwi continued alongside Robin Frijns at the team. As the championship tightened, Cassidy fired to 11th overall – with a maiden victory in New York City and a further podium in London added to his tally.
