3 minutes, 45 seconds Read

The American outfit were one of the founding members of the championship, having raced in the series since Extreme E launched in 2021.

The team’s sole victory came at the NEOM Island X Prix I in 2022 with Sara Price and the late Kyle LeDuc behind the wheel. Alongside the efforts of Price and LeDuc, last year’s driver pairing of RJ Anderson and Amanda Sorensen have helped the team score three podiums across their three seasons in the series.

Extreme E wishes Chip Ganassi Racing and General Motors well in their future endeavours, as the series looks ahead to its fourth campaign beginning in early 2024. Chip Ganassi Racing has also expressed its intention to return to the championship as it transitions to Extreme H in 2025.

In a statement, Chip Ganassi Racing, said: “Chip Ganassi Racing can confirm that the team will not be competing in the Extreme E series for the 2024 season. We sincerely thank Extreme E for welcoming our GMC HUMMER EV entry as part of their innovative series and look forward to following the series’ growth. We will be watching closely as the series, and its technical partners continue to push motorsports in their move upward and into a modernised off-road hydrogen-powered race car for 2025 and beyond.”

Alejandro Agag, Founder and CEO of Extreme E, said: “We would like to pay our upmost thanks to Chip Ganassi Racing and General Motors after their three years in Extreme E.

“General Motors have been important ambassadors for our electric racing series, however as we transition towards a hydrogen-powered future it’s a logical move for them to concentrate on continuing their efforts in the electric market. We wish them success in their future endeavours. 

“Although Chip Ganassi Racing will not take part in Season 4, we know that they are huge supporters of our unique form of off-road racing, particular with our switch to Extreme H on the horizon in 2025.

“Chip Ganassi Racing is synonymous with the highest echelons of motorsport and we are hopeful that they will return to the series as we transition to hydrogen-powered racing – a world-first – as an FIA Championship.”
