McLaren to Enter Extreme E in 2022

McLaren Racing has announced it will enter into Extreme E, the all-electric off-road series that aims to use racing to promote sustainability and diversity, in the 2022 season. 

The team will compete in the five-race global championship next season, designed to highlight the impact of climate change in some of the world’s most remote environments, promote the adoption of electric vehicles for a lower carbon future, and provide a gender-equal motorsports platform.

McLaren Racing has previously served as a supplier for the FIA Formula E Championship, providing the battery powertrain for the Gen 1 and Gen 2 seasons. The entity also actively competes in Formula 1, IndyCar and esports.

McLaren Racing will operate the team using both existing personnel from outside the Formula 1 program and additional specialist resources. All Extreme E teams are limited to four mechanics and one engineer at each event for the one-make car, plus two drivers.

“While Formula 1 will always remain at the center of our world, like IndyCar and esports, our entry into Extreme E is additive to the McLaren Racing franchise and will complement and help support all our programs,” McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown said.
