The new Extreme E electric SUV endurance racing series which will have its inaugural event in January 2021 with Dakar in Senegal becomes the first series to have in their regulations that each two vehicle team will feature both a female and male driver alternating each stage.
The series will use Odyssey 21 E SUV in the races. So how will the vehicles get to each event?
Extreme E have acquired the former Royal Mail passenger and cargo vessel, the St Helena which is currently undergoing a modern refit which includes lowering the emissions while it travels from venue to venue.
‘The Floating Paddock’ will dock at the nearest port of the five formidable venues in Senegal, Saudi Arabia, Nepal, Greenland and Brazil. The vessel will also have an onboard laboratory where scientists will be able to carry out research.
