MS Amlin welcomes Kamui Kobayashi to the MS&AD Andretti Formula E team

London – 15 November 2017 – In a move designed to foster greater support for Formula E in Japan, MS Amlin, the specialist global (re)insurer, has welcomed the announcement of Kamui Koybayashi, one of Japan’s most recognised driving talents, to the MS&AD Andretti Formula E team.

The appointment ahead of the Formula E Season Four opener in Hong Kong, on 2 and 3 December, 2017 has delighted the Japanese owned MS&AD business, one of the world’s biggest non-life insurers.

Adrian Britten, MS Amlin’s Director of Brand, said: “We are so pleased that Kamui is joining us, he’s highly successful and hugely popular in Japan. It would be fantastic to see a Formula E race in Japan in the near future and his exciting style of driving will certainly help raise the profile of the series in his home country.”

“We think it’s important that people consider alternative energy sources for their transport needs for the future security and success of the communities we insure around the world.  Formula E shows just how exciting an innovative alternative fuel transport can be.”
