Check out this sneak peek of the 2009 Formula 1 world champion's first test with XITE Energy Racing

Having rocked the Nitro Rallycross world by signing Jenson Button on Tuesday, XITE Energy Racing powered by myenergi has revealed this teaser video to the season ahead.

Button and XITE Energy Racing team owner and driver Oli Bennett tested a series of cars ranging from a crosskart to XITE’s Mini RX Supercar at Pembrey in Wales earlier this month.

Stay tuned to DirtFish to see Button talk further about his decision to return to competition with a film coming later this week.

The team is also planning a behind the scenes film – XITE Energy Racing uncut – highlighting its efforts in a second season of Nitro RX action. You certainly won’t want to miss that.
