Lotus back in the dirt

Lotus back in the dirt

This year saw the launch of the FIA’s newest electric motorsport series, Endurance-E, in which off-road rally-raid cars traverse some of the most treacherous locales, with a focus on venues that have been damaged or effected by climate change.


The series has already proven to be a big draw thanks to the high profile names attached, a roster which includes Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. Button’s own team JBXE has also announced Lotus Engineering as its technical partner for the series. While the 550bhp race cars are mechanically the same for the first season, Lotus Engineering’s involvement could hint towards Lotus becoming a larger presence in electronic motorsport in the near future. The first two events will have already taken place by the time of publication, but the subsequent Greenland (Arctic), Brazil (Amazon) and Argentina (Glacier) events will be broadcast via the following streaming sources: BBC iPlayer, Sky Sports Action and the Extreme-E website.
