Extreme E is delighted to announce it will return to Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, where two of its teams will take to the infamous Hill and battle it out on track for a unique event.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is renowned as the world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture, featuring some of the most famous names and vehicles of historic motorsport. Extreme E already has strong ties to the Festival of Speed, having unveiled its pioneering ODYSSEY 21 for its first public outing in 2019.
The sport for purpose championship will now be returning to the Festival of Speed with two teams, Veloce Racing and Genesys Andretti United Extreme E, battling it out in a head-to-head shootout. A battle against genders, this shootout has been uniquely designed for the female drivers to compete against their male counterparts.
Taking the wheel of Genesys Andretti United’s ODYSSEY 21 will be both of their current Extreme E drivers Catie Munnings and Timmy Hansen.
Timmy Hansen, Genesys Andretti United driver, said: “We can’t wait to drive up the hill, it has such a legendary status. It’s going to be a lot of fun driving up the hill. It’s fantastic that we can showcase our electric car at such an iconic event, sharing the road with so many other iconic cars.”
Meanwhile, no stranger to Goodwood, Munnings has previously presented for the various automotive events. Catie Munnings, Genesys Andretti United driver, comments: I’m so excited to be back at Goodwood this year. It’s my first time in a while that I’ll be heading there and focusing purely on the driving side, rather than presenting at the event. We can’t wait to show off the car to all the fans and have some fun doing it.
