Block’s addition marks a significant moment for both his family and Extreme E.

Thus, Lia’s arrival figures as an emotional closing of a cycle that honors her father’s legacy and passion in the racing world. “I am delighted to be making my Extreme E debut at the next round in Sardinia for the Island X Prix,” assured the young driver.
“It’s a great opportunity to be able to race for Carl Cox Motorsport, so I can’t wait to get behind the wheel and hit the track. I’m really looking forward to doing my best for the team and getting good results,” she continued.
After achieving an outstanding podium in Scotland, Carl Cox Motorsport is currently in eighth position in Extreme E season 3, accumulating 23 points, leaving great expectations on its new duo (Block and Timo Scheider), while attention will focus on the debut of Lia, this July 8 and 9 in Sardinia.
