Sun Minimeal, founded by Swiss food producer Sun AG, have agreed to enter Extreme E ahead of the 2024 season.
- New team to be led by Timo Scheider, who will act as both team principal and a driver
- Swedish driver Klara Andersson will partner the German
- Greenberg Traurig also signs on as Extreme E’s official legal services provider
The Swiss food producer has joined the sport for purpose championship to showcase its latest food innovations, as well as highlight the importance of global resources in nutrition and food waste.
Greenberg Traurig is a global law firm recognised for powering its US offices with 100 per cent renewable energy. It also has a considerable focus in the Middle East, being one of a handful of law firms that flocked to Saudi Arabia after the country changed its laws around foreign firms acquiring licenses last year.
Alejandro Agag, founder and chief executive of Extreme E, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Sun Minimeal Team into our series as our latest entrant.
“Despite being a new team in the championship, Sun Minimeal Team arrives with plenty of experience and race-winning pedigree in its line-up, so we hope they will be fighting up at the sharp end of the field when the new season begins next month in Saudi Arabia.”
The 2024 Extreme E season gets underway with two rounds on 17th and 18th February in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This will be the final electric-powered season before the series evolves into the hydrogen-based Extreme H from 2025.
