Extreme E: Andretti team goes down in defeat at Goodwood

At the Goodwood Festival of Speed this past weekend, Extreme E teams Andretti United XE and Veloce Racing decided to compete against each other in a head-to-head time attack.

On Saturday, Sim Racer Max Fewtrell (a substitute driver for Veloce) defeated Andretti’s Catie Munnings with a time of one minute and 1.79 seconds to the latter’s one minute, 4.87 seconds. Pretty embarrassing for Munnings that she was beaten by a substitute sim racer and not the team’s real driver.

The following day, Andretti’s Timmy Hansen avenged his losing female teammate by breaking the one-minute mark at 59.95 seconds to stave off Jamie Chadwick’s 1m0.79s time.

However, Veloce’s combined time of two minutes and 2.58 seconds trumped the Andretti duo’s two minutes and 4.82 seconds.

Munnings commented on a video posted by Andretti United’s social media saying it was so much fun despite losing.
