Alejandro Agag, the founder and CEO of the Extreme E is pleased on how great the first-ever race weekend has been for his new racing concept, and he says they have been working so hard to make this happen over the past couple of years. He also admits the concept went way beyond his wildest expectations.
Johan Kristoffersson and Molly Taylor from Rosberg X Racing won the first-ever race weekend which was held at the sandy deserts of AlUla in Saudi Arabia and Agag said he has never experienced such extreme racing in his entire life.
Agag continued to speak about how the race weekend has a huge influence on how the series evolves and he says a reason why he is so proud of this, is the introduction of a 50/50 male and female line-up in the series, so the female drivers can also shine as much as they do deserve, with aiming to make it even for both of the genders in motorsport.
“We’ve worked so hard on this for many years, and finally everything has come together this weekend. It really has been beyond my wildest expectations. If I had written a script for the perfect weekend, I could not have come up with anything better than what we have witnessed these past two days – I’ve never seen such extreme racing in my life,” Agag, said.
“This first race weekend will have a huge influence on how Extreme E evolves, and one of the reasons I feel so proud is that we have built this platform where female drivers can shine like they deserve. What we have seen from them here is extraordinary – some incredible talent and courage – and overall, I think it’s fair to say we have really made our mark. I’m over the moon.”
