Prince William races electric – with Extreme E
Prince William was given a masterclass in electric racing today at Knockhill Racing Circuit, Scotland. It was with Extreme E, the pioneering, purpose-driven series using sport to highlight global climate change issues. He took to the wheel and with great ease.
The test drive was organised ahead of COP 26, which takes place in Glasgow later this year. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were visiting innovative projects in Scotland which aim to positively turn the dial on the climate emergency during Lord High Commissioner’s week.
Prince William was hosted by Extreme E CEO and Founder Alejandro Agag, a driving force behind the electric motorsport revolution, Adam Bond, CEO of AFC Energy.
With them members of two of Extreme E’s British teams; George Imafidon, a Junior Engineer on Lewis Hamilton’s X44 team; and driver Catie Munnings, who races for the Andretti United team, who was on hand to show the Prince how to get the best out of the series’ electric race vehicle.
