    Thisis going to be great to watch but sorry Jensen not wishing to piss on your chips so to speak these electric cars are not the answer to the world climate FACT !!! If you look at the macro over view and not the micro overview you will see that the damge to theplannet is not what folk think !! electric motors and their form of build and products used can be just as damaging but in other ways !! but well done for trying to solve the issues !!

    I admire and respect Jenson Button and think this Extreme E series is a very promising format. But all this "car racing to raise awareness for climate change" is horse poo. That's like organising an adult expo to raise awareness for women rights and hold it in places where genital mutilation is a thing

      They have a ship to travel around those 5 places and take all the cars and equipment. The idea is to use this ship also as a home during the season, for all the teams, but yeah I get your point. I have mixed feelings about it, specially cause one of the places is in my country.

    Sooo, now I get it... Extreme E is about travelling around the world with these cars, at a huge expense in terms of money spent and carbon emitted!.. Just to drive efficient (to run) Dakar style buggies... 16km! I get that it's to highlight/promote climate change affected areas and EV's (which I believe are the future of road cars), but this is a bit of a joke.

    • Joey Mac

      @ben stanton I do understand that they have plans for many environmental schemes and that they will be"offsetting" their carbon use... in the same way other series and businesses claim, but it's still rather silly. There will of course be a cost here, and none of the landscapes they visit will escape that. I'm not against the series, or other forms of motorsports, including rally & Dakar which both cause local damage, I'm just not a fan of hypocrisy. Anyway, I'm interested to see how the series grows and improves, which I hope it does. I had high hopes for Formula E, but I think they're lost at sea with that series.
