Motorsport Images has been selected as the official photography agency by Extreme E, the exciting new motorsport discipline taking place in some of the harshest climates on Earth to highlight the impact of climate change.
• Extreme E has attracted a high-quality field with teams entered by top motorsport names including Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Jenson Button, Chip Ganassi, Michael Andretti plus drivers like Molly Taylor, Claudia Hürtgen, and Jamie Chadwick. In a world-first for motorsport, teams will each field one male and one female driver who compete equally together in each race for success.
• Race events will take place in the vast dunes of Saudi Arabia for the opening Desert X Prix, the coast of Senegal, West Africa (Ocean X Prix), Kangerlussuaq, Greenland (Arctic X-Prix), Pará, Brazil (Amazon X-Prix), and Argentinian Patagonia for the season finale, the Glacier X Prix.
Motorsport Images will provide exclusive photography assignment and distribution services for the Extreme E series and teams.
The race events pose plenty of challenges including the extreme environments which will produce dust, sand, humidity; internet connectivity; and the potential complications in getting close to the action as race routes aren’t like conventional circuits with the usual viewing positions but shoot team at Motorsport Images has been preparing for months to overcome these challenges. With years of knowledge as the leading motorsport photography agency covering Formula One and Formula E events live, and have also bought in Dakar Rally and World Rally specialists, this is a challenge for which Motorsport Images is ideally equipped.
