Oliver Clark Askew (born 12 December 1996 in Melbourne, Florida, USA) is a Swedish-American racing driver, who competes in the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship with Avalanche Andretti Formula E.[1] A former Champion of the Indy Lights series, Askew would become the first American driver since Scott Speed to race in FE when he made his debut at the 2022 Diriyah E-Prix I.[1]

Background

Askew began his career in karting, racing in his native United States through to the 2016 season, when the American youth earned a Team USA Scholarship.[2] That funding allowed Askew to compete at the Formula Ford Festival at the end of the season, and a spot in the Road to Indy Shootout.[2] Askew duly won the shootout at Leguna Seca, earning him a $200,000 prize to fund a campaign in the USF2000 Championship in 2017.[2]

Indy Hopes: 2017 - 2021

Askew entered the 2017 USF2000 Championship as one of the favourites, and a string on strong early-season results would carry the American youth to the title, just ahead of Rinus VeeKay.[2] That victory carried Askew to the next tier of the "Road to Indy" ladder, with the American racer joining the Pro Mazda Championship.[2] Third in that series, which was won by USF rival VeeKay, would be enough for Askew to progress into the Indy Lights series in 2019, joining Andretti Autosport.[2]

Once again, Askew found himself fighting with VeeKay for the honours, although for the second time in three seasons it was Askew who claimed the crown from his Dutch rival.[2] That title earned Askew a funded seat in the IndyCar Series in 2020, with Arrow McLaren SP signing him to their squad alongside Patricio O'Ward.[2] However, it proved to be a tricky rookie season for Askew in the condensed 2020 season, with the high of a podium finish in his fifth race outweighed by a heavy accident at Mid-Ohio that caused Askew to miss two races.[2]

2021 saw Askew move into Endurance racing, debuting in the LMP3 class with a run to victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona, en-route to fifth in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.[2]

Formula E History

Askew was signed as the second driver for Avalanche Andretti Formula E in the build-up to the 2021 Valencia Test, the single pre-season test ahead of the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.[1] The American racer became the first driver since Scott Speed competed in the 2014/15 season, and would partner sophomore FE racer Jake Dennis for the campaign.[1]
