Formula E driver Dan Ticktum has been fined and had his road vehicle licence endorsed following a ruling by a court in Staffordshire last month.
Following the hearing last month, Ticktum was told to pay a fine of £440 plus additional costs of £90 and a surcharge to fund victim services of £176. He was also given six endorsement points on his driving licence. Drivers face a ban if they incur 12 points within a three-year period.
Ticktum, who is in his second season racing for NIO in Formula E, has courted controversy more than once during his career. While racing in MSA Formula in 2015 he was given a one-year ban for deliberately colliding with rival Ricky Collard in Safety Car period during a race at Silverstone.
He previously belonged to driver development programmes for two F1 teams. However his one-year ban compromised his chances of participating in an F1 test for Red Bull in 2018 during his time with the current world champions.
Ticktum later joined Williams’ junior driver programme but was released by the team mid-season in 2021. This was understood to have followed a complaint from a member of the public, and was not related to comments Ticktum made about Nicholas Latifi, one of the team’s F1 drivers at the time.
