Extreme E is getting ready for a new edition of the competition. It seems that it was a few days ago when it all started, but the truth is that they are shaping up for their third season, where they will have the participation of a new team owned by DJ and electronic artist Carl Cox, which will be called Carl Cox Motorsport Extreme E.
In this way, he will give continuity to his passion for motorsports, knowing the importance of the 100% electric off-road category with respect to sustainability, given that in 2013 he officially launched Carl Cox Motorsport as a multidisciplinary outlet for two, three and four-wheeled vehicles.
In addition, the renowned DJ has also shown interest in motorsport innovation, being one of the influential factors for his arrival in Extreme E, a series he has interacted with in the past after appearing as DJ in the first of the double race held in Sardinia last year.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome Carl and his team Carl Cox Motorsport Extreme E. We all know him as the superstar that he is, but beyond his musical talent, it’s clear that his passion for motorsport runs deep. We look forward to working with him as we help him on his journey to sustainable racing,” said Alejandro Agag, Extreme E Founder and CEO.
On the other hand, Carl Cox also expressed his words on the matter. “I’m here to make a difference. Having the opportunity to be part of something so dynamic on four wheels is a dream come true. Both racing and music are in my blood, so I’m going to bring my passion and energy to this series to build something special,” he said.
