Rosberg X Racing puts one hand on the Extreme E championship with victory in the Enel X Island X Prix after the car-destroying Sardinia course broke steering and hearts at Chip Ganassi Racing. We hear from Professor Lucy Woodall on the role of climate change in the natural disasters afflicting the Mediterranean. James and Michael come up with a new tagline for the series.
James and Michael spell out the championship picture with series commentator Andrew Coley ahead of the Enel X Island X Prix, Tamara Molinaro and Timo Scheider give us the inside line on the Sardinia course, and Professor Lucy Woodall explains the importance of Seagrass and blue carbon in our battle with climate change.
You can’t keep Sara Price away from racing, even if she has to take some detours to get there. When the global financial crisis derailed her meteoric motocross rise, she opened her own auto paint business. Then she became a stuntwoman. And eventually she transitioned to car racing, and her irresistible rise continued.
The stars were aligned for Sara again, and her career was about to take its latest turn: in 2020 she claimed the unique status as the first drive announced to compete in Extreme E, and with none other than iconic American racing dynasty Chip Ganassi.
James and Michael caught up with Sara after the Arctic X Prix to ask her about her transition from two wheels to four, racing non-stop through the night in the desert and camping on the Arctic ice cap — and falling into a river in the process.
We also hear from Professor Lucy Woodall from the Extreme E scientific committee ahead of the Island X Prix to get a sense of the global scale of the challenge facing our oceans.
