Piquet Jr. previously competed in the Global Rallycross series, where he was twice a championship contender and took an overall event win at the 2015 Washington DC round.
Outside of rallycross, Piquet has a varied CV. After battling Lewis Hamilton for the 2006 GP2 crown, he raced in Formula 1 for Renault in 2008 and 2009.
Since then he has raced in NASCAR – where he is a multiple race winner; sports cars, and Stock Car Brasil. He has also raced in Formula E, where he was the all-electric series’ maiden champion in 2014/15.
“I’m very happy to be joining TitansRX," said Piquet Jr. "I love all forms of motorsport and I really enjoyed competing in rallycross in America a few years ago, so it will be great to get back behind the wheel of a rallycross car. We’re going to have a lot of fun!”
