A promising youngster, Rowland started karting at the age of seven before going on to win numerous Club and National level Championships. 2010 saw Rowland get a chance in a racing car for the first time, joining Formula Renault UK Winter Series, competing against several future Formula One stars. One victory, and seventh overall, was enough to earn Rowland a drive in the full Formula Renault UK Championship.
His run to second in Formula Renault UK earned Rowland the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award in 2011, before moving to the Eurocup version of the Series. Two successful seasons saw Rowland progress to the Formula Renault 3.5 Series in 2014, taking two wins on his way to fourth. A dominant display in 2015 saw Rowland take the title, with the Brit making several appearances in the GP2 Series as well.
Formula E HistoryEdit
An injury sustained in Putrajaya by Nick Heidfeld saw the German undergo surgery on his hand on medical advice, ruling him out of the 2015 Punta del Este ePrix in December. Rowland was approached by Mahindra Racing to take over Heidfeld's seat for the Urugyan weekend, and will make his Formula E bow in Punta del Este, with Heidfeld expected to return in the new year.
