The first American team to commit to electric SUV Extreme E off-road racing series is Andretti Autosport, the sixth overall team to join the electric SUV series.
Led by Michael Andretti, Andretti Autosport holds nearly two decades of accolades across various disciplines of motorsport, including five Indianapolis 500 victories and four INDYCAR SERIES championships. The team has also been active as a competitor in the ABB Formula E Championship since the inaugural season, with multiple racing victories and now competing under the BMW i Andretti Motorsport banner.
The Extreme E championship will unfold over five rounds of competition, each featuring two days of head to head, knockout racing highlighting the impact of climate change and human influences while raising awareness, driving sustainability and inspiring action.
The 10-kilometer circuits will be staged in some of the most remarkable, remote and severely damaged locations on the planet: Kangerlussuaq in Greenland, the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil, Al-‘Ula in Saudi Arabia, the Nepalese Himalayas and Lac Rose near Dakar, Senegal, where climate issues to highlight include rising carbon emissions, global heating and melting arctic ice, rising sea levels, droughts and desertification, deforestation, plastic pollution and more.
