Veloce Racing contender Stéphane Sarrazin feels glad to become part of Extreme E, a series that he considers as something that’s “capable of shaping the future”. 

“It’s incredible to be contesting the first-ever Extreme E event in such an extraordinary setting. This is a great opportunity to be part of something shaping the future, because there’s no question for me that electric is the future for motorsport.” Sarrazin said during the pre-race press conference, Friday (2/4).

Sarrazin is no stranger to electric racing. Having raced in Formula E for few seasons, he’s had numerous experiences under his belt and #DesertXPrix is the right time to test his knowledge on electric racing and rally being combined. 

“Maybe I have a small advantage on the electric side from Formula E, so I need to ensure I make the most of that.”

He realised that all his rivals are top drivers, but that doesn’t stop him from trying to get results as best as he can along with teammate Jamie Chadwick. 

“Jamie is really fast and we spent some time together at my rally school in France where she improved a lot in gravel. Though her background is in circuit racing, she improved herself to be open-minded and keen to learn. We have a very good relationship.”
