(OTCQB: KULR) (the “Company” or “KULR”), a leading developer of next-generation thermal management technologies, today congratulates the Andretti United Extreme E team for winning the Crazy Race semifinal and placing second overall in the inaugural Desert X Prix in Saudi Arabia on April 3-4, 2021. The new all-electric motorsport format focused on sustainability, which started with time trials on Saturday and then continued to semifinal and final heats on Sunday, saw the respective teams owned by former F1 rivals Nico Rosberg, Michael Andretti, and Lewis Hamilton all place in the grand final.
The top three point scorers after Saturday’s time trials qualified for the Semi-Final. The fourth, fifth and sixth place qualifiers progressed to the Crazy Race while the bottom three teams competed in the Shoot Out. First and second place teams from the Semi-Final and the winner of the Crazy Race, won by Andretti United Extreme E drivers Timmy Hansen and Catie Munnings, progressed to the Desert X Prix Final.
Michael Andretti, Andretti United Extreme E co-owner commented, “What a fantastic result for our team and great way to kick off this exciting new race series. Extreme E is a huge challenge on so many levels and the driving conditions in the Saudi desert were certainly not for the faint-hearted. Well done to Catie and Timmy for looking after the car and bringing her home in second place. The excitement and buzz around Extreme E is growing all the time and we’re excited to see what the rest of the season has in store for Andretti United.”
“Congratulations to the Andretti team on winning the Crazy Race and taking second in the finals,” said Michael Mo, CEO of KULR Technology Group. “It was absolutely unreal how Catie powered the car to the finish line on only 3 wheels half-way through the race. No wonder both Catie and the Andretti team are both fan favorites. As the official thermal management and battery safety provider to Andretti United Extreme E we are thrilled to be part of the experience.”
