Extreme E: How excited are you to return to racing?


Lance Woolridge
: "I'm really looking forward to it! It has been great to get a preparatory test in prior to the double-header in Sardinia, especially to get familiar with all of the upgrades and changes we've made to the car. We have been focusing on what we need to do at the event and have put in a lot of training and preparation towards that."




What are your thoughts now on that first race in NEOM?



LW:
"To be honest, I think there are far more positives than negatives to take from it. There was definitely some frustration from us as a team, especially knowing the pace that we had. However, we've reviewed it internally and we know that we have definitely got the pace to get results. It is down to us to make it count and get the maximum from it."





We've had a bit of a break between races - what have you been doing off-track during that time?


LW
: Well I got married... so that was great! I did manage to have a short honeymoon before getting back to work. There's been lots of preparation and lots of training. I have done plenty of mountain biking and running throughout, too.






Congratulations! Those preparations will really be put to the test in our first-ever double-header event. Will this create a different challenge for you?



LW:
"I think so. It is is going to have a lot of aspects to it, particularly in weighing up the risks versus rewards for points in the first round. We need to make sure we get there, and it will be interesting to see the different approaches taken by teams on this. There will also need to be a quick reset after the first round to either regroup or ensure we don't rest on our laurels to keep striving for success. We need to maximise our performance.






What will be the main challenges be regarding the terrain?



LW:
A big factor is that we are going to be going over the same track twice. That's going to make for rougher terrain, even more so than last year. Also, it is going to be much hotter than the first Island X Prix last October. We have just been testing in similar conditions in France so we feel well prepared for what we will be facing.






And lastly, what is the goal going into the double-header?



LW:
I think we have the pace but as a team we need to execute it correctly. If we can do that then we think the results from that will be really rewarding. That's what our focus needs to be on and then the results will follow.
Lance’s team Veloce Racing go head-to-head with Genesys Andretti United Extreme E at this weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed for Hill Honours.



Jamie Chadwick is back in the driving seat for Veloce Racing, joined by fellow British driver Max Fewtrell - making his debut in an Extreme E ODYSSEY 21.



They will be racing against the Genesys Andretti United Extreme E duo Timmy Hansen and Catie Munnings - but who will come out on top?
