Kyle LeDuc And Sara Price Get First Taste Of Extreme E

With just four months to go to the first race of Season 1, the Extreme E teams are taking delivery of their ODYSSEY 21 cars and getting to grips with these new machines.

American outfit Chip Ganassi Racing received its electric SUV at its famous Indianapolis workshop and spent some time getting to know the first electric machine the team has used, before taking it out to the Nevada desert for its first spin.

This was the first time the car has been on US soil, and the first time drivers Sara Price and Kyle LeDuc had the opportunity to test.

“Our shakedown with the Extreme E ODYSSEY 21 was a success,” Sara Price said. “We came out to the desert, a place I am super familiar with, but with a car that is brand new for me. We had a great time as a team learning the new car and this electric beast,” Price continued. “It’s very new to all of us, so we are learning everything for the first time and working together to make it the most successful program we can. Can’t wait to take on the 2021 season; it’s just around the corner.”

“Last week, we have done the impossible, drive an electric off-road road truck through the desert and sand dunes, and even send it on its maiden flight,” Kyle LeDuc explained. “I am blown away at what the Extreme E series has put together with this truck built by Spark and how this Chip Ganassi team has built a massive program to prepare for the 2021 season. I’m stoked along with teammate Sara Price to get things started for the season. I’m ready, and this team is ready to attack 2021 fully electric.”

We will have to wait and see just how the two elite American drivers take to the dirt in the electric vehicle. For more information on the Extreme E series, be sure to visit their website.
