How the new electric series with planet-changing aims will work

By:

The new off-road electric race series from the people who brought you Formula E has no less an aim than saving the world’s most at-risk habitats. Here’s who things are set to get underway in 2021

If an electric motorsport series is to be established, the person to do it should be obvious: Alejandro Agag. After all, he and his team created the blueprint for Formula E – an electric championship that's not just existing, but thriving.

Now he's doing it all again with a few differences and plenty of similarities. In 12 months' time, the electric off-road SUV racing series Extreme E will be just a few weeks away from its projected first contest. Since becoming FE chairman in December 2018 – although he carried on working as that series' CEO until last September – Agag has been busy getting his latest project out of the harbour.
