Challenging conditions and quality action from Extreme E Hydro E Prix in Scotland
Scotland delivered striking backdrops and testing elements this weekend for the Extreme E Hydro X Prix.
Racing in a former opencast coal mine, Glenmuckloch, which will be transformed into a Hydro plant. This race, as always, showcased the transition from carbon intensive practices to renewable energy production.
Teams raced on a technical course, with typically Scottish conditions from fog and rain to mud and sun, constantly changing track conditions.
Saturday started with a total fog white out, but transformed into a stunning day, showing off the landscape. X44 Vida Carbon Racing took the podium top spot in Round 3, the Season 2 champions' first win of the 2023 campaign, after a time penalty for on-course winners Andretti Altawkilat Extreme E.
Sunday was totally different driving conditions. Round 4 saw British team Veloce Racing lead from start to finish to give them the win and the championship lead.
Extreme E’s remote production is cutting edge and market leading. Live on ITV this weekend the programme is shown by more than 80 broadcasters in over 180 territories worldwide.
A challenging weekend due to conditions, the whole team pulled together. It wouldn’t be possible without our trusted partners NEP Group, Inc. Al Kamel Systems S.L. Interstate Creative Partners, adi.tv and Aerios Solutions Ltd.
We look forward to going again with Extreme E in July for the Island E-Prix in Sardinia.
