For the third installment of Extreme E, competitors took to the Arctic X Prix in Kangerlussusq, Greenland for the country’s first-ever motorsport event. With the dramatic drop in temperature and a vastly different terrain providing non-stop action from the Shakedown all the way through to the dying moments of the Final.
Qualifying 1, led by the potent combination of Sébastien Loeb and Cristina Gutiérrez as they stormed to victory, only to follow it up with another consistent performance to go P2 in Qualifying 2. Overall, the #44 car accrued 17 points – six for than the nearest competitor to mark their third top qualifier spot from all three events.
The unforgiving Arctic X Prix course, combined with the series’ revised sporting format produced some of the most exciting racing yet with the 18 world-class drivers battling not only themselves, but the conditions and various track hazards en route to the finish line. After a titanic battle with championship leaders Rosberg X Racing during Extreme E’s first-ever five-car Final, Andretti United Extreme E came out on top.
With the Arctic X Prix having reached its conclusion, the Extreme E paddock will be loaded onto the St Helena, and set sail for Sardinia, Italy (October 23/24) for the fourth installment of 2021.
