Meet Mike Lugg
Working in close collaboration with Leon Price and Sylvain Filippi, Mike works as the team’s Technical Director heading up the Engineering Department. Educated at The University of Adelaide, Mike boasts vast experience and success in many categories of motorsport.
Starting in V8 Supercars in Australia, and then moving to the UK to pursue European motorsport, Mike worked as a Race Engineer with many top-level drivers in GP2, GP3, WSR 3.5 and Formula 3.
He worked in Formula E from Season 1, joining our team in Season 2 to work with Jean-Eric Vergne and then Sam Bird. He then went onto broaden his experience as a Race Engineer with Red Bull Racing F1, before returning to the team in Season 7 to take up the role of Technical Director.
He is an invaluable member of the company, still travelling to races, whilst directing through his engineering team the planning and smooth operation of simulation, race strategy and driver performance. When not working, Mike enjoys cycling both on and off-road.
