Extreme E cancels rounds in Brazil and Argentina – Motorsports

The All-Electric SUV Off-Road Racing Championship will be held in Brazil on October 23-24, before the finale of the Glacier X-Prix season in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, December 11-12. I was planning to hold an event.

However, as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in South America, both events are currently off the calendar.

Motorsport.com will make the final decision on whether to continue these events taking into account championship officials who are facing the current difficulties of moving to each race location due to the wreck of the course. I understand what you need to do.

Alejandro Agag, co-founder and chief executive officer of Extreme E, said:

“As a new series to embark on the opening season, our priority is to provide a safe, five-race calendar of events that participants, partners and staff around the world are responsible for traveling and attending.

“This was not a careless decision, but due to current travel advice and restrictions, we were unable to visit the race area in advance to make the necessary reconnaissance visits.

“Of course, thanks to Dr. Francisco Oliviera’s support and our partnership with Brazil’s Nature Conservancy, we will continue to support important reforestation and agroforestry initiatives that are already well underway in the region.

“We would also like to thank the local governments of Brazil and Argentina for their support throughout the process and hope to be back in 2022.”

According to a statement from Extreme E, the series is currently considering announcing the location of alternative races shortly.

One backup is the western islands of Scotland before Glasgow convened the United Nations Climate Change Conference in November.

The timing of this event was behind Prince William’s test driving a standardized Odyssey 21E-SUV machine at Knockhill last month.

Extreme E was previously affected by a pandemic, and its debut event in Saudi Arabia was originally scheduled for March 20-21, but has been postponed to April 3-4.
Argentina itself was drafted as an alternative to the proposed event in Nepal, but had to be canceled due to the “complexity of reaching the proposed race area”, but the championship is in the future I promised a round in Nepal.

This major calendar retreat happens that day McLaren Racing announced that it will enter Extreme E in 2022.
