THE JURASSIC X PRIX WAS NO WALK IN THE PARK
The No. 99 SEGI TV GMC HUMMER EV.R and the other Extreme E combatants did battle in the fifth and final race of the inaugural 2021 season. This time, the Jurassic Coast in southern England hosted the Jurassic X Prix.
The UK’s Jurassic Coast is a World Heritage Site because of its layered sedimentary rock cliffs displaying hundreds of millions of years of geological history—and thus its prehistoric name.
Late December’s harsh conditions created a track muddier than the racers have encountered, producing traction and visibility challenges. In addition, a huge jump in the middle of the course resulted in more air time and rougher landings. It’s not hyperbole to say the season’s final race featured extreme racing, pushed to the extreme.
So, now along with our racing partners at Chip Ganassi Racing, the GMC HUMMER EV.R team is recharging and gearing up for the just-announced season 2 of Extreme E competition. Check back for all the pre- and post-race news and highlights for what is sure to be exciting, electrifying and, as usual, extreme.
