British House and Techno Club DJ Carl Cox is getting into Extreme E Racing. Cox announced he is forming a team that will race the 2023 Season. Cox has been involved in motorsports since 2013. Cox has a Superbike team, supports racers at the Isle of Man and been involved in drag racing. This will be Cox’s first involvement with electric racing. Cox has a music career that has spanned the last 30 years and is one of the most influential names in the DJ industry.
“I’m here to make a difference. To have the opportunity to be part of something so dynamic on four wheels is a dream come true. Racing, like music, is in my blood and I’m going to bring my passion and energy into this series and build something special. Participating in electric racing is new to me but I’m a fast learner and will bring my hard earned know how and experience into the mix at Extreme E. Carl Cox Motorsport is here to take on all comers and we are going to jump straight in. We are in it to win it,” said Cox.
Cox attended last year’s double header race in Sardinia and was given a lap around the course in an Extreme E vehicle. Cox has not announced which drivers will be on his new team.
