Scotland can host rounds Extreme E After the championship announced that the electric off-road racing series would postpone its visit to South America due to the ongoing coronavirus situation.
The series was scheduled to host Amazon X Prix in the State of Para, Brazil in October, and head south further south in Patagonia, Argentina in December, but has now been postponed until next season.
The Western Scotland Islands have been designated as potential alternative rounds prior to Glasgow, which will host the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in November.
“This wasn’t a careless decision,” said Alejandro Agag, founder of Extreme E, about the postponement. “But due to current travel advice and restrictions, we were unable to visit the race area in advance to make the necessary reconnaissance visits. This is especially important for the remoteness of our business. “
“Of course, thanks to the support of Dr. Francisco Oliviera and the partnership with Brazil’s Nature Conservancy, Agag continues the significant reforestation and agroforestry initiatives already underway in the region. We support.”
Extreme E has already completed two of the five X Prix rounds. Dessert X pre With Saudi Arabia Ocean X pre In Senegal. The Arctic X Prix will be held in Greenland in August. Each race event focuses on a variety of issues facing the planet, including climate change and animal protection.
