Fans will also be able to follow their favourite team and driver and view live sector times via the official Extreme E website and on mobile devices. Zenith will continue to award an Extreme E driver at each X Prix with a ‘Moment In Time’ prize.

Zenith’s philosophy of chronometric precision and boundless innovation is the perfect fit for Extreme E’s exciting knockout style racing format. Alejandro Agag, Founder and CEO of Extreme E, said: “It is fantastic for the series that we will be continuing our fantastic partnership with Zenith and we are also delighted that Zenith will be remaining as our Official Timekeeper. Zenith is a master of accuracy and a name recognised worldwide for timing and excellence. We are looking forward to working even closer for the forthcoming season and combining our efforts to raise awareness of the climate crisis even further, where timing is critical.” Julien Tornare, Zenith CEO, added: “We are totally blown away by the kind of energy and passion we got to witness during our first year of collaboration with Extreme E. I’m proud that Zenith can say it joined this innovative Championship from day one, and that our shared values of gender equality, sustainability, and innovation for the greater good was felt in everything we did together. We can’t wait for the 2022 season!” Building on the success of its debut year in 2021, Extreme E Season 2 ‘The Race for the Planet’ promises to captivate on and off track on a whole new level, whilst delivering on its overall purpose to tackle climate change through sport, starting with the Desert X Prix in Neom, Saudi Arabia, 19-20 February.
