Embracing more and more terrain, Extreme E is always open to experiment new things to contribute to its mission to spread sustainability to all possible corners, so the 100% electric rally category made its podcast debut with the launch of its “Off Track” show.
James Baldwin and Michael Lamonato will be hosting the radio show that has everything to succeed, being streamed on YouTube, Spotify and Apple Podcast, providing several options for speed and radio lovers. On the first show, the Extreme E team featured Molly Taylor.
She is part of the Rosberg X Racing lineup, along with Johan Kristoffersson, category leaders, driven by Nico Rosberg, Formula 1 Champion and an openly committed supporter of sustainability and green energy use.

Extreme E’s First Off Track
During the debut broadcast, the Australian driver shared about her early days and what fate had in store for her automotive career, since before she stumbled upon four-wheeled speed, her goal was to become an Olympic equestrian jockey. But she ended up sitting behind a wheel to make it in the world of motorsport, enough to win the Rally Australia title in 2016.
“I essentially grew up on a motorsport family. My grandfather started in Rally. Dad and mom were also involved in Rally, so you see it as a psychological conclusion that I would do Rally as well. “Although I grew up surrounded by sport it was not until I was older and had my license; I was about 15 or 16 years old,” said Taylor, first X Prix winner of the season in Saudi Arabia.
She also confessed that her entrance into rallying was not intentional, but after getting the license, her father invited her to drive one of the school rally cars in an attempt to make her a responsible rider. “When I did that (driving) I said ‘OK, wait a minute, now I get it!” she related with a chuckle.
