New Team in Extreme E
Extreme E Season 4 will kick off in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, during February 17-18. Timo Scheider and Klara Andersson, representing the SUN Minimeal team, are aiming for a solid racing debut during this event.
“Especially in racing, a diet that supports performance is extremely important. SUN Minimeal is the simplest and safest way to eat healthy and sustainably. What is special is that it contains all natural nutrients in the right amount and with a low calorie content. The food is especially appreciated by people who are short on time, travel a lot and do not want to forgo a healthy diet,” says Wolfgang Grabher, CEO of SUN AG.
On the other hand, Alejandro Agag, Founder and CEO of Extreme E, said, “We are delighted to welcome the SUN Minimeal team to our series as our latest entrant. Despite being new to the championship, SUN Minimeal Team comes with a lot of experience and race-winning pedigree in their lineup, so we expect them to fight at the front of the field when the new season kicks off next month in Saudi Arabia.
